About Jazz Strings:
During this deep dive lesson, we’ll identify some of the fundamental chords and scales used in jazz improvisation and sample ear-opening ways we might practice them. From here, we’ll explore a style of improvisation known as Bebop and how we might begin familiarizing ourselves with key ideas, phrases, and techniques associated with this virtuosic style. Lastly, we’ll delve into various ways to put all this knowledge into action – how to develop our musical & technical fluency both in practice and performance. Come ready to play!
