Beginner Jazz Improvisation Lesson 2A-Tenor Sax

(1 customer review)



This is a beginner improviser series for tenor sax.  In this series of lessons I will take you from the very beginning and teach you how to improvise.  I will cover the same material as the alto sax improvisation lesson but focus on the tenor saxophone. In this lesson 2A I will teach you about the F major scale, the G dorian scale, the C mixolydian scale and the chords that these work over.  I show you how to learn them and the chords as well as how to practice them with some Aebersold play alongs. I also show you the D blues scale and talk about how to use it against F major and D minor.  I spend a lot of time talking about hearing the resolution points within each scale and chord and what to listen for when improvising.  My goal with these series of lessons is too teach you all the basic chords and scales in every key and get you improvising in a fluent way over some common jazz standards.  I demonstrate all the material on my tenor saxophone.

    I love these lessons. They are clear and concise and are helping me build a strong foundation of theory and practice. Steve has a way of breaking things down so it easy to understand.
