The Beginner Jazz Soloing series is aimed at less experienced players but is also perfect for classical musicians who are looking for a way in to improvising and how to teach it. The method features a simple six-step process that has been tried and tested in over 100 workshops with excellent results.
The book covers playing by ear, how to turn a scale into a melody, how to improvise in different styles, and how to compose your own tunes using the same simple method. There is a whole chapter on jazz articulation and how to develop your sound, how to improvise on ii-V-I sequences as well as tips on transposing and working in other keys.
The book includes over 150 free audio downloads each for tenor, alto and clarinet, with everything in Bb and Eb transpositions.
Available worldwide in print from Amazon and for download on Kindle.
Built for the iPad, these digital books have interactive features which make them more like using an app than a book.
Available in four transpositions (Concert, Bb, Eb and Bass Clef) these books are written for any musician on any instrument interested in learning how to learn to improvise.
Unlike a lot of other available material on this subject, these books aren't just about the theory, they are about the process. They provide a series of practical exercises that break down, what can feel like for some, a huge leap in to small manageable steps. Not only a great resource for musicians new to improvising, these books can also enable teachers to give their students a structured and clear pathway towards learning to improvise.
Each book is dedicated to one specific topic and includes exercises and notation with audio files embedded in to the book.
