This combination will not only improve your AAJ experience, it will allow us to continue to rigorously build on the great work we first started in 1995. Read on to view our project ideas...

Video Surgeon is the ultimate teaching and learning tool for musicians who use video. It can transform ordinary video footage into a valuable learning tool, thereby speeding your learning.

Video Surgeon is a form of video analysis software. It enables users to perform video slow motion, zooming, and looping - and it can do ALL of these at the same time. And that's just the beginning, Video Surgeon enables you to do frame-by-frame review and analysis, it allows you to print video frames while zoomed in, it performs basic audio editing, and it can EXPORT changes creating a new video with slow motion and zoom embedded in the new video. It also contains a YouTube video downloader, rips DVD's and can open files from most video cameras. Lastly, it allows you to customize loops, and can change the key of audio found within the video.

Whether you are an expert musician who has been playing for 40 years or a beginner just learning, Video Surgeon is guaranteed to give you that competitive edge and help you learn faster. It represents a new paradigm in teaching and learning for musicians.

Historically video analysis software has been reserved for professional musicians and athletes and is a staple of their training programs. At a cost of hundreds and even thousands of dollars, these systems were priced out of the reach of the average consumer. That has all changed with the launch of Video Surgeon. Now you can have access to many of the same features used by the Pros, but at a fraction of the cost.

Video Surgeon is a powerful tool for anyone that uses video in their teaching, training, learning, lessons or instruction, regardless of their field of endeavor and regardless of the musical instrument they play.

It is available for both Windows and Mac (OSx) based computers. Go to for more information or to download a fully functional, 4-hour trial version of the software.
