The only prerequisite for these lessons is that you have a copy of my Jazz Improv Materials Handbook Complete.
Since that book traces the steps I took in learning how to go from not being able to improvise at all to being reasonably proficient at it, that is also the way I teach improvisation. I will walk you through the entire regimen, offering tips and anecdotes based on first-hand experience with learning to improvise.
These lessons usually last a minimum of three hours, and if they go over, no extra charge. Lessons are scheduled at a mutually convenient time.
