  • About the Course

    Learning Jazz Improvisation begins with an overview of key historical events in jazz and the people who influenced the cultural development of the jazz flute and the most important people who contributed to the innovations of the music. Subsequent lessons include jazz-specific ear training (including intervals, chords, chord progressions, melodies, and major and minor scales), applicable and functional harmony and a three-tier system of conscious, subconscious, and superconscious learning methodology. This clear and concise approach enables the student to connect and apply previously learned music and techniques to the process of improvisation. Additionally, students learn strategies for transcribing and performing solos within the basic rhythm section which includes piano, bass, and drum, as well as the applicable and functional theory of improvisation.

    Based on the archaeological findings, Flutes are the earliest known musical instruments, as many flutes dating back to about 43,000 to 35,000 years ago have been found in the Swabian Jura region of present-day Germany. This establishes a developed musical tradition existed since the earliest period of modern human presence in Europe.
