I’d like to invite you to check a new series of free jazz lessons called Exploring Jazz Improvisation.

You can find them here http://jazzpath.com/education/

The lessons are a series of audio lessons that instruct listeners on a variety of approaches that are useful for people wanting to learn more about melodic jazz improvisation. There will be at least 10 lessons in the series with new lessons posted every 30 days or so. The first lessons are general and lay the groundwork for the more difficult lessons to come. Each lesson comes with a free play-a-long. You can also subscribe and get lesson updates on Itunes.

Hope you enjoy.
Best,

Brian, your lessons are very well thought out and I agree that melodic structure is a better goal than learning every scale in the world and then going back to the changes. You are hitting the many musicians who want to improvise but don't have 2 hours a day to learn their horns and learn to play. Nice job. K

Thanks to everyone for being so patient! I've been at home for the last few months with my new born daughter...and she makes it a little difficult to record and practice! But I'm back on track now...should be a new lesson every month.

Hope you enjoy the audio lessons

Brian,
The podcasts and book have been very helpful to me. I like your focus on
phrasing before harmony. I haven't seen many others take that approach,
but I really prefer it.

Have fun with your little girl, and get back to making lessons! Thanks again.

Thanks for the nice comments guys. I wish I could check into the forum more often and be timely in answering questions, but my daughter keeps me away from the computer! Yes, the books can be shipped to the UK (very discounted international shipping at www.jazzpath.com) or through Jamey Aebersold's company. I'm not aware of any international retailers as yet...but hopefully in 2008.

Hope everyone has a great holiday..the next lesson will be posted around new year's eve (it's already recorded and ready to go)..plus in 2008 we'll be embedding sheet music and perhaps video into each lesson to help people with the concepts.
Best,

I grabbed your podcasts earlier in the week and enjoyed them so much I went out and bought the book. That's going to be a major portion of my 2008 workout.

Thanks
