A beginners' guide to jazz improvisation

Recorded with ex-Fife Youth Jazz professionals, this site has a teaching resource which outlines techniques, offers music to listen to and which allows you to play along with the band and then practise solo improvisation with the given notation.

What’s different about this approach is that the player will also improve ensemble skills by playing harmony and solo lines along with the band.

Fife Jazz is funded by the YMI Scheme administered by Creative Scotland.
