I now publish in a brand new format where you get to practice along with me, so you are never in any doubt what or why we are practicing certain items!

Here's the link for the Patreon, you need tier 2 for the improv lessons -


The current scheme of work we are following is on the jazz tune 'Bernie's tune'.
