My Book – Jazz Improvisation Basic Training

Jazz Improvisation Basic Training provides a comprehensive breakdown of entry-level jazz harmony and a step-by-step guide to improvisation. Complete with musical examples, you will discover and explore the basis of the jazz vocabulary, beginning with concepts as simple as the major scale, culminating with methods championed by the greats to form your own improvised melodies.

This isn’t a “patterns for jazz” book, or an archive of “licks”. The aim here is for you to develop an understanding of how harmony is formed, strengthen your technique and, in turn, develop your own original ideas.

The subject matter in this book is applicable to all instrumentalists, though all musical examples are written in the treble clef.

Physical copies and the E-book are available via Amazon now.

Self-published through the Self-Publishing Partnership.

Music Tuition

I teach 1-1 music lessons in person (London based) and via Facetime/Zoom/Skype to those overseas. I welcome all instrumentalists. I’m happy to discuss composition, harmony, jazz improvisation, technique and anything specific you happen to be working on. I do my utmost to cater the lessons to your individual sound and level of ability.

Along side my endorsement with D’Addario I present workshops and seminars in schools and universities. In these sessions I cover much of the same material as in my 1-1 lessons, but also shed light on the touring and studio session work I do. If you’d like to enquire about scheduling a lesson or workshop please do via the contact form below.
