It’s been quite some time since we’ve shared an online jazz resource that we dig and so we’ve decided to change that and share JazzAdvice.com with you. We hope to return to doing a monthly feature and are thrilled to begin with such a wonderful site.
Jazz Advice is run by saxophonist Forrest Wernick and trumpet player Eric O’Donnell. Both have Master’s degrees from William Paterson University, and are currently active performers.
The site is an excellent place to find improvisation tips, practice advice and more.
A few places to start:
- How to Practice Improvisation Less and Improve More
- How to Hear Chord Changes
- Scales are Not the Secret Shortcut to Jazz Improvisation
- 20 Things Every Improviser Should Know
We hope you enjoy checking out Jazz Advice.
If you have a favorite online resource for jazz or music advice, we’d love to know about it! Please feel free to share a link in the comments below.
