Length: 2,5 hours workshop

In this time students will learn how to develop:

  • Knowledge of the chord changes – Learning the chord changes is a fundamental part of Darren’s approach to improvisation that underpins all other learning.
  • Knowledge of jazz vocabulary – Once chord changes are learnt, jazz vocabulary can start to be incorporated into practice, this could entail enclosures, scales fragments…
  • Rhythm – Make your solos super authentic by learning and internalising great sounding rhythms…
  • Soloing over summertime using only one scale – We will take a look at the pentatonic and how we can use it (along with the rhythm part of the workshop) to sound amazing relatively quickly

The workshop is open to the following instruments: Guitar, Trumpet, Saxophone (any), Clarinet, Trombone, Bass

Students should be a good intermediate standard and be able to read notation to get the most from this workshop.
