  • Improvisational Skills for Beginner Musicians

    Robbie Fearon Jazz Improvisation Teacher (Birmingham) Picture As a young clarinet student I learnt notes through reading music, and was not expected to question why the notes were what they were. Later on as I took my graded exams I learnt my scales. Again I wasn't taught their significance to music, and I learnt them by rote without question. I could read...

Remember that jazz musicians are usually focused on improvising and tend to value originality and spontaneous creativity over...
  • Classical and Jazz cohesion Editor's Pick

    Dan Nicholson Jazz Improvisation Teacher (South West London) Picture I began as a Suzuki trained pianist at a very young age being taught with very high levels of discipline and fine tuning. Whilst this method has its advantages borne from child developmental theory, in reality its approach is not one that is likely to ever become a blanket pedagogical pathway in...
