Play and Learn is an exciting method to learn the art of jazz improvisation -- for individual study or classroom use with an entire jazz ensemble. Through the use of recorded jazz tracks (70 on the CDs included), sequenced concepts involving exercises, licks and mini-charts, plus structured lessons, a student can acquire improvisation skills.
Jazz Improvisation is for students who wish to hone their improvisation skills, and is applicable to all treble clef instruments. Designed to also improve single line sight reading and an awareness of jazz chromaticism, this book builds upon 11 well-known chord patterns with increasingly difficult melodies.
Jazz Improvisation for Keyboard Players is a straightforward, no-nonsense improvisation series. It deals with creating melodies, using the left hand, pianistic approaches to soloing, scale choices for improvisation and much more.
