Helping you to successfully build a foundation that you can use to:

  • Expand your knowledge of tunes/repertoire.
  • Strengthen your knowledge of melodic, harmonic and rhythmic formula.
  • Improvise confidently and in a musical, jazz-like manner.

It has been my experience that you will grow musically and as an improviser and jazz musician.  You can anticipate:

  • A more secure knowledge of jazz theory – scale/chord application, harmonic progressions and rhythmic variety.
  • How to successfully learn a tune.
  • How to improvise in a jazz-like manner appropriate to the tune and style.
  • How to memorize efficiently.
