The VMS in a nutshellThe VMS program presents essentials about melody, harmony and rhythm in a well-organized series of movies, PDFs, mp3s and animations. The VMS includes clear explanations, playable songs to practice with, ear training material, pages to fill in, puzzles to solve, a Rhythm Gym, II-V-I facilities, and more.
It is an integrated package, using multimedia to the max!

For whom? The VMS is for anyone who is interested in the construction of music and in improvisation. You must be able to read music at a reasonable level and a certain level of competence on your instrument is required. Working with the material in the VMS (even if you only play the themes) will enhance your reading, playing and hearing abilities. You can go through the content several times, picking up more and more each time.
