“I firmly believe you are on to something great and in the process reinventing how people learn to improvise.”
-Dr. Rodney Brim
Psychologist, Performance Improvement Executive, and Trombonist
Jazz Ear Savvy is my latest thinking about improvisation and musicianship. These 40 or so pages and 25 sound files will guide your focus toward a deep dive into strengthening your jazz ear.
In Trombone Improvisation Savvy, ear strengthening was a central focus. After its publication, I realized that there is so much more that can be said about the ear and done to improve one’s jazz playing. You have music inside of you. The hard part is getting it to pass through your horn similarly to how you hear it.
Jazz Ear Savvy will help you understand and strengthen the connection between your inner musical ear and your instrument. Call it ear building. Call it bridging the gap between the music inside you and your instrument. Call it playing jazz better than you ever have.
