*Learn how to breathe so that improvisational ideas can be realized*
The Jazz Trumpet Overhaul is designed to target every aspect of performance related to jazz improvisation on the Bb trumpet, including the following:
•Fundamentals of breathing as applied to improvisational ideas; encompassing the correct lung capacity during “Inhale,” correct rate of airflow/air pressure during “Exhale,” wind embouchure formation and mouthpiece placement.
•Beginning, Intermediate and Advanced improvisational concepts as determined by the skill level of the player.
•The Beginning/Intermediate level will target the ability to recognize and outline basic chords, chord progressions and their related scales; introduce significant Blues and
Be-Bop compositions; develop better phrasing and articulation; develop better practice techniques; utilize the cycle; develop basic patterns; improve ear training; develop memorization; develop listening skills of key major jazz trumpeters; and transcribe important improvised solos of key major jazz trumpeters.
•The Advanced level will target the ability to recognize and outline more unorthodox chord sequences; unorthodox forms, bitonals; effectively use pentatonic scales; effectively use hexatonics and intervallic patterns based on 4ths; improve ear training; develop memorization; develop listening skills of key major jazz trumpeters; and transcribe important improvised solos of key major jazz trumpeters.
•Increased knowledge of key repertoire
