Thanks for dropping in. Let me fill you in on what I've got happening. I'm a full-time music teacher and performer in the Atlanta area...and I've been doing it for a long time. In addition to my private studio, I am also Artist Affiliate in Jazz Saxophone at Emory University.
About five years ago I started writing educational jazz books. Using my personal students as guinea pigs, and I keep about 70 of them at any given time, I began by writing etude and duet books. It's escalated from there to include a jazz combo series designed for use in schools, workshops, or even private studios as a small group or individual improv method.
“For the young musician, Randy Hunter has put together a well thought out,
of jazz study books dealing with the feeling of music. How things should be
played and studied
melodically, rhythmically and harmonically from an early age, which is the key
to developing one’s
own approach to improvisation and ensemble playing. These books:
Introductory Etudes and Duets
Book 1 are not just filled with exercises and patterns for a change! Thanks
