JUST IMAGINE PICKING UP YOUR GUITAR,
CLOSING YOUR EYES AND PLAYING WHAT YOU FEEL.
Well it’s a lot closer than you think. The Blackout Bootcamp will teach you how to play guitar without looking.
I’m David Bloom and I founded the Bloom School of Jazz 40 years ago to help musicians of all genres discover and develop their musical potential.
I have written numerous books, and developed custom exercises using innovative techniques and taught thousands of musicians—from beginners to Grammy award winners.
Although Blackout Bootcamp is for any instrument, this version is designed for guitar and bass. I play guitar myself and I’ve been featured in Guitar Player magazine numerous times.
I've realized the following:
Don’t let your ear hold you back. Develop it with Blackout Bootcamp. As your hearing increases in awareness, you will be able to play what’s in your head, as well as be able to imitate what you hear, instantly.
Navigate the guitar by what you hear, not by what you see. That’s what master musicians do.
The one-day intensive Blackout Bootcamp includes sessions that start very simple, then increase in difficulty.
We will provide you with a custom Blackout Bootcamp Blindfold. This guarantees that you are navigating your guitar by ear only.
Closing your eyes will open up a new world.
Stop relying on visual fretboard patterns. Blackout Bootcamp will teach you to listen to rhythms, melodies and chord progressions, then play what you hear. Start being able to hear notes in your head and play them without looking.
In 30 days, for the first time, teach your ears and hands what music sounds and feels like– not what it looks like.
Remember what it’s all about…picking your guitar up, closing your eyes and playing what you feel.
Let your ideas flow. Playing music will be a different world for you.
Blackout Bootcamp will be held January 21, 2024 at 2:00 PM at Bloom School of Jazz. The cost to attend is $50.

"The relationship between your Ear, Hand, and Fretboard will be in a completely new realm from where it is now. Rather than playing with your eyes, you can finally play from your heart and soul. This course will help you start your path to be a master musician." - David Bloom
