This is a beginner jazz improvisation series for alto sax. In this series of lessons I will take you from the very beginning and teach you how to improvise.
In this lesson, I teach you the importance of melody. Playing lines and solos that are melodic and pleasing to the ear is one of the most important thing a young improviser can learn. Many novice improvisers have a hard time bridging the gap between learning scales and chords and then creating melodies with those building blocks. In this lesson, I show you how to do just that. It is a life long process but my goal is to get you started early so that you can become a great improviser over time. I want to become an improviser that can create great and memorable solos that the audience will hear and remember. (34 Minute Video Lesson)
