Meet Your Vibraphone Teacher: Jason "MalletMan" Taylor
Jason “Malletman” Taylor, jazz recording artist and protégé of the late, legendary Lionel Hampton, has a fresh “explosive” approach to playing the vibraphone. He is a five-time Grammy ballot nominee who is known for his unique presentation of jazz, R&B and swing, creating a signature sound he calls “Vibrafunk.”
“Malletman” is dedicated to “Keeping real music alive.” He considers the vibraphone to be “the most beautiful sounding instrument.” His love for the “vibes” becomes evident to anyone who attends his dynamic performances. Taylor has opened for Earth, Wind and Fire, Pancho Sanchez, Pieces of a Dream, Najee, The Manhattans, Paquito D’Rivera, Maya Angelou, & has performed with Tito Puente Jr. Taylor, a devoted clinician who represents Yamaha, Sabian, Reunion Blues bags and Mike Balter Mallets. "Malletman" is the host of “Mallet’s Place - TV,” a public access television show that airs on Time Warner Cable stations in Staten Island, NY, Maine and Los Angeles, CA.

“The Mallet Code”
If you can only practice vibraphone for 5 or 10 minutes a day, hey that's fine. Believe me, a leisurely pace works - it just takes a little longer. On the other hand, if you want to stay up all night learning with me, that's cool too. It's completely up to you. And once you own these DVDs, you can watch them whenever want, so there's never any deadlines.
