What will I learn?
The beginner level is built around jazzy blues ideas, locking you into both straight and swing timing. You will understand how jazz leads the pentatonic scale to different intervals and melodic contours. And as you finish the level, you will develop your understanding of the dorian mode.

In the intermediate section, Luca helps you to develop a range of approaches, making use of chromatics, outside notes and triad pairs. With a set of etudes, you have the context to put this new knowledge to the test.

You’ll learn how to use melodic minor and outside playing to add more colour and tension to your lines, and how to use ghost notes to make your phrases feel more alive. With concepts you can apply to your own licks, and musical ideas for inspiration, the advanced level shows players everything they need to play confidently and fluently.
