15 Essential Jazz Etudes is a collection of etudes specifically composed to help you “speak” the jazz language better. Each etude focuses heavily on bebop and clearly spelling out the chord changes to help your solo’s come to life! These etudes will help you learn to navigate chord changes, voice-lead, and enhance melodicism in your solos. Each etude is based on the chord progression to a common jazz standard.

What people are saying:

“I purchased 15 Essential Jazz Etudes this last week, and I just wanted to say how great I think it is! It’s a brilliant way to learn with the play-along instead of just the sheet music…so much essential language in it. So many things I have tried like this just sound generic, or jazz by numbers, but yours sounds melodic and relevant. 5/5 stars!”
