I am now offering saxophone and jazz improvisation lessons in the Denver area.
If you live outside the Denver area and would like to study, we can arrange a Skype lesson.
I teach an integrated curriclum that covers:
- Tone and Technique: Helping you develop your personal sound is the goal. Technical study will focus on jazz scales, arpeggios, and pattern materials.
- Jazz Improvisation: You will study from The Shape Method, an original and unique approach to learning Bebop jazz improvisation by studying its melodic and rhythmic shapes. Composition assignments focusing on the various principles of the method will help you develop your personal and authentic jazz language.
- Ear Training and Dictation: Integrating your ear, mind, and intelluct with your instrument is the goal. Solo transcription is an important component of this study.
- Jazz Keyboard Harmony for the Non-Pianist: Providing you with the skills to realize jazz harmony on the keyboard, regardless on your keyboard experience.
Non-saxophonists are also welcome to study.
