    Hey Chrissy!

    Thanks for dropping a line here. While this area is a bit of a ghost town at the moment I see that changing in the near future when I create some things designed for users to participate in this section more.

    There’s not enough jazz flute players in the world – you are very welcome here! I think you’ll find that playing through the exercises in each unit will provide you with some different perspectives on improvisation. One of the common misconceptions about improvisation is that it is completely made up. A lot of what people are doing when improvising is preconceived!

    If I could make one suggestion: Start with the most recent unit (in this case the ‘Stella By Starlight’ Unit) as that will be the one emphasized throughout the month. From there, go back and have a look at other tunes that might interest you. If Confirmation is calling you, by all means have at it!

    I’m going to have to check out that Jethro Tull/Ian Anderson Solo. I love hearing about things that inspire and I’m sure others will too when they learn about it. Linking the songs below:

    Thanks for sharing – See you around the studio!
