  2. High School and College
    Hi, I'm a junior in high school and I tried out for jazz ensemble in sophomore year but two people better than me had already had those spots pretty much "reserved" since they were older and better than me. I filled in for a winter concert where I had to practice 6 days a week to catch up with...
  3. Jazz and Improvisation
    Hi Guys, Looking for a little help. I've been taught to improvise using modes. This works a lot of the time, but I realize that sometimes it is easier to use key centres and think of changes in terms of what scale I can use given the sharps/ flats of the chord tones. My question is, in the...
