I am making some lesson I created available at no cost.
The tune I used for the lessons is Tadd Damerons 'Ladybird'.
The lessons include
Lesson overview and etude - https://youtu.be/HoLsDhjRfUU
Chord/target notes - https://youtu.be/K17B94SHpLM
Articulation - https://youtu.be/USj7Wdv5x6w
Key centres - https://youtu.be/LKG01n4yA9s
Chromatic enclosures - https://youtu.be/dMOHQb21E88
These lessons have been taken from my Patreon page where members receive weekly jazz improv lessons on a variety of subjects and tunes with a practical focus on developing jazz improvisation skills.
Lesson schemes have focused on
Chet Baker vocabulary
All the things you are
Mack the knife (currently)
We focus on developing vocabulary and the ability to hear the chord changes with practical guidance on developing those specific skills.
I hope you enjoy the lessons included in this blog post.
