Jazz is a vast subject, and can seem really daunting at first. The key to learning jazz music is to as much listening as you can! Find who you like to listen to and then listen to who they played with or who they liked to listen to, and just keep going from there. There is no right or wrong way, as long as you do what you do with passion and excitement for learning. Figure out how they played, how they sound, and make it your own. 

Recommended Books:

  • Patterns for Jazz (Jerry Coker)

  • Patterns for Improvistion (Oliver Nelson)
