A Jazz Improvisation Primer
The classic free online jazz education resource
A Jazz Improvisation Primer was one of the very first jazz education resources ever to appear on the World Wide Web, debuting back in the 1990's. It has followed me through several different site designs, servers, platforms, and site redesigns - and survived a number of crashes along the way.
The original version of my Primer currently lives on my website Outside Shore Music. Here is the direct link:
I intend to always keep the original version available, but now I am also working on an expanded edition with supplemental materials that you will find here, as well as additional online courses on theory and composition. Enroll now for free to be informed about the updates as they become available!
