Beginners

Credentials/Background:
I teach Electric Bass and Jazz Improvisation at Wake Forest University in Winston-Salem N.C. I also work with local high schools helping them with improv and rhythm section groove.

Clinic/Workshop Information:
I work with students on improvisation techniques. I explain chord scale relationships and have them play. I have students play as much as possible with the information I give them at that moment. I also cover solo ideas, analyzing tunes and styles. I realize that improvisation is personal and different for everyone.
