Corey Christiansen

    Corey Christiansen began playing the guitar at the age of five. He studied with his father, Mike Christiansen, (a seasoned performer, writer, and educator at Utah State University) until he finished his bachelor degree. While at Utah State University, Corey received many honors and awards including the outstanding music student award and outstanding guitarist. The Lionel Hampton Jazz Festival awarded Corey with outstanding big band guitarist in 1995 and outstanding solo guitarist in 1995 and 1996.

     Seeking a masters degree in jazz performance, Corey sought out renowned jazz guitar educator, Jack Petersen and began studies as a graduate teaching assistant at the University of South Florida. He received his masters degree in jazz performance in the spring of 1999. Jack Petersen retired that same year and Corey was hired to take his place as the adjunct guitar instructor. While teaching at the University of South Florida, Corey worked with the jazz guitar students and directed many of the jazz combos.

     Corey left U.S.F. to pursue a career as a guitar editor. Corey has a musical background covering many styles of music including jazz, blues, classical, bluegrass, folk, rock and popular music. This quality has enabled him to perform in a number of different settings. In 2007 Corey moved back to his home state of Utah to work at The Music School located in American Fork, UT as the head of curriculum.

Corey Christiansen - Coltrane Changes - Book and CD
Applications of Advanced Jazz Harmony for Guitar. John Coltrane's recording "Giant Steps" introduced a system of chord progressions and chord substitutions that has challenged even the best jazz musicians. The tri-tonic systems (sometimes referred to as "Coltrane Changes") found in the tunes Giant Steps and Countdown are taught in a digestible way throughout this method. Etudes show how to re-harmonize standard ii-V-I changes with Coltrane Changes. The play-along CD will help students practice and master single-note lines over these chords in all 12 keys. Guitarists will appreciate the chord voicing suggestions. A must have for the serious jazz guitarist.

Presents numerous lines and techniques in the style of Charlie Parker, grouped by the harmony they can be used against. Each idea or concept can be practiced with the accompanying play-along online audio.

 Charlie Parker Plays "Donna Lee"

Corey Christiansen - Essential Jazz Lines: Grant Green - Book and Online Audio
This book focuses not only on lines in the style of Grant Green, but also some of the techniques he used. The jazz lines have been grouped by which type of chord or chords (major, minor, dominant seventh, etc.) they can be played against. Each section has a one or two chord vamp in one key to help guitarists hear how the line works against any given chord or chord progression. Play-along tracks for each harmonic situation moving around the circle of fourths help with learning the lines in all 12 keys. Before long, guitarists studying this method will have a vocabulary that will allow them to solo over the most common chord progressions in jazz. Eventually original ideas inspired by previously memorized lines will be created and an original voice will begin to emerge.

 Grant Green & Stanley Jordan "Live"

Corey Christiansen - Essential Jazz Lines: Joe Pass - Book and Online Audio
This book contains a study of lines used by Joe Pass, broken down and grouped according to how Joe used them harmonically. The play-along online audio exemplifies how these relate to a harmonic background. Each harmonic section contains a play-along recording in the original key and a play-along, moving in fourths, to help the student practice the lines in all twelve keys. Eventually, the student will learn to mix and match these ideas and create lines of their own. The more phrases and ideas a student has, the more they are able to improvise or juxtapose their ideas to create new melodies on their own.

 Joe Pass Plays "Yardbird Suite"

Corey Christiansen - Essential Jazz Lines: Wes Montgomery - Book and Online Audio
This book presents some of the soloing techniques that Wes Montgomery used and also presents many melodic ideas (lines) similar to the way he played over the chord progressions in many jazz standards. Because the major and minor ii-V-I progressions are the most widely used chord progressions in jazz standards, the lines in this text will work over these progressions. The online audio contains many play-along tracks (vamps of one chord and vamps around the circle of fourths) that the guitarist should use to practice the material in one key and then master it in all twelve keys. By learning the techniques used by Wes Montgomery, guitarists will add to their own improvising arsenal.
