Throughout his master class, Larry focuses on his love of blues, jazz, and fusion. He helps his audience to explore the different approaches comping and soloing over choruses, as well as how to support a solo musically and develop personal solos. His goal during his courses are to help players better understand improvisation, rhythm playing, and soloing skills to help each musician find his or her voice.

Larry’s classes offer the absolute most in diverse opportunities for students to not only interact and understand a top professional and his techniques, experiences and history, but to gain personal knowledge about the world of music through this living legend’s eyes. His main objective is to share his knowledge and experience with students throughout our nation and world.

Larry also brings with him his extensive collection of recordings, spanning over 30 albums. Larry brings his background of 3,000 sessions, 200 hit records and over 100 gold and platinum albums that have sold over 250 million copies to his credit. Carlton has his fingerprints indelibly imprinted on virtually every genre of music. He uses his recordings as a tool to communicate different techniques, as well as to give his audience greater insight to each song and its history.

In an attempt to better connect with his audience, Larry keeps the session open with opportunities to ask questions and communicate candidly.
