As your confidence grows you will move to explore cultivating an individual approach to phrasing; soloing and improvisation; developing mind and body connection as well as ear training.

You will also reach beyond the notes and uncover the principals of crafting a successful jazz solo and use both your foundation skills and new techniques to illuminate the dark art of jazz soloing. Unlock the secrets of great horn and wind performance.
