MusicDojo History & Important Information
A note from Adam about the MusicDojo courses:
The MusicDojo courses offered here at AdamNittiMusicEducation.com were originally part of my curriculum at MusicDojo.com, an interactive online music school co-founded by myself and bassist Len Sitnick back in 2003. MusicDojo was revolutionary in the way it offered music education through the use of interactive features and multimedia components, which included video clips, audio clips, music notation, and tablature in a 'virtual classroom' environment. Although this was a unique online offering in the early 2000's, the internet has changed dramatically since then. With the advent of much faster and affordable broadband speeds emerged what I like to call, "The Online Video Revolution," from which high definition video-centered sites such as YouTube were created and established. This technology/media shift ultimately reshaped the paradigm for internet-based learning, and the rest was as they say, "history."
The MusicDojo is no longer open for business, but I decided to include my courses from there in our current curriculum so they could still be studied and enjoyed by our students. These classes are loaded with months' worth of exercises and reference materials, and provide a solid foundation for players interested in further developing their playing skills and/or theory knowledge. Based on their relevance to the topics covered, you will find that some of these courses have embedded video clips to help demonstrate particular concepts or exercises. However, you will immediately notice that the video clips in these courses are at a much lower resolution and quality than the main video lesson library on AdamNittiMusicEducation.com. When I recorded these clips 10 years ago, they were recorded using a Sony 8mm (remember tape, y'all??) video camera at what was considered at the time "high quality." So, I apologize in advance for the poorer video quality, and I really appreciate your grace and understanding as you work through them! :-) Rest assured, however, this will only be temporary... I will be re-shooting all of these video clips in HD to bring them up to date with the rest of the site very, very soon. We'll be sure to notify you via email and on the home page when they are ready.
Thanks for being a part of the AdamNittiMusicEducation.com community, and I hope you enjoy the courses!
