Lessons

If you are interested to take lessons with me, send me a mail or call me on the phone. And we'll hook something up.

Meanwhile here´s a bunch of PDF lessons I´ve been working on. Most of them have previously been posted at jazz-o-matic.com 

Feel free to use them and if you have any suggestions, comments or requests, just drop me an email and I´ll see what I can do about it.

Write a bluestune.

Here´s a little template you can use to make your students(or you) write a blues tune pretty easy. You can choose to just use the bluesscale at the bottom of the template, or/and use the chordtones, to write you melodies. When I use it with my younger students, I tell them to make up the melody, try write it down, but more important -be able to play your melody. And then I help them write it down, and at the same time suggest changes if needed. SO without further ado, go compose.
