Structured, planned lessons. I can teach you jazz improvisation. I remove the mystery and just teach you what to do and how to do it. Develop the tools to express yourself creatively.
Each student works through a logical, progressive program.
The knowledge and skills you need to learn jazz are made clear. Play exercises and repertoire that help you learn, practice, apply, and master these things.
All my students have the opportunity to play in jazz groups as well as private lessons – a chance to apply the lessons for real. This can also be very motivating for students as well as fun.
