Welcome to the new JazzPracticeIdeas.com!
This site was created to help musicians develop their abilities with jazz harmony, improvisation, harmony, rhythm, time-feel, and other aspects of being a well-rounded serious musician. The creators of this site are jazz musicians themselves — and educators — but more importantly… they are all LIFELONG students of music. There is always more to know, more to understand, and more to hear… Our capabilities as jazz musicians can always be broader, deeper, more organic, and more compelling — and lifelong study and pursuit of jazz makes that possible.
Each time you visit our site, if you leave with just one actionable idea — one take-away — then we feel like we’ve done our job. Thanks for visiting Jazz Practice Ideas, and be sure to bookmark this site.
And coming soon! Available now online for pre-order:
