Learn how to harmonize a sax section using 5-part closed voicings. The lesson is based on an original composition of mine with an audio performance by the sax group at the university where I teach. Full score included with EXTRAS.
One Exercise Through the Chords, Part 4: Applying Variations to Tunes
Learn to use the variations from part 3 along with a chromatic embellishment in your solos on tunes. We'll use the chord progression and play-along tack from Lee Morgan's tune, Ceora for our studies. Be sure to download the. EXTRAS folder and watch the Phrasing Demonstration for the lesson.
Learn to create interesting ii-V-I's using the "One Exercise" along with several variations. Using a ii-V-I play-along track, we'll do a good bit of "I-Play You-Play" practice through the keys. Play-Along Track and Written File included in the downloadable "EXTRAS" folder.
One Exercise Through the Chords, Part 2: Working With Tunes
Learn how to apply the Exercise from Part 1 in the series to tunes. I demonstrate the process on the tune, All the Things You Are, using a play-along track. Be sure to download the EXTRAS folder for the track and written file.
A step by step intermediate level approach to connecting the triads and 7th chord arpeggios in 3/4 time. This series of exercises was developed with a Skype student of mine, but I thought it would make great practice for anyone looking to build fluency with arpeggio based vocabulary.
In this quick harmony lesson you'll learn basic 1-3-5-7 major, dominant, minor 7, half-diminished, diminished, and augmented chords by the interval. This is an easy approach that is very practical when it comes to understanding the construction of chords in jazz standards.
