Quick turnaround

Great apple product for a very competitive price. Ordering online was a breeze and I was able to collect within 2 days of placing my order.

Love them

Be careful with them as they can easily get lost and fall into random places as they're very small.

MODULE 5 - EIGHT NOTE SOUL SCALE
- Adding the #4/b5 as a passing tone

We are going to look at the striking essential to know flavour that is known as the sharp #4 or the flattened b5.Perhaps the most digestiable way to understand it, is as a passing tone from the 3rd to the 5th. Many famous tunes are using this technique, and I will present you with a few of them, and show you how to naturally insert it in your own Jazz vocabulaire.

Experienced Jazz Player & Teacher

Nick Homes

Hi, my name is Nick Homes, musician, saxophonist, educator and musical mentor.

 

I was and still am a non genius musician who struggled for many years to find out the secrets of jazz playing.Throughout 35 years of playing, and obsessive investigation I have focussed on building systems of learning for myself and students so they can improve , and reach their goals with the highest probability.

 

My Youtube channel Jazzduets (225,00 subs) is where I  share my systems of learning and personal insights in to music.

 

The Foundational Soul Scale Course offers a more profound, deeper experience of learning as the 120+video classes are much more personal and have been put together in a step by step logical way, with each class building on the previous one

 

 

You should take this course if

  • You already play an instrument and want the solid and broad musical foundation needed to improvise Jazz and Blues
  • You are hungry to know and practice the secret exotic jazz notes the greats use
  • You are looking for a tried and tested study method that will take you closer to your goals
  • You are looking for an abundance of material to keep you busy for literally years
  • You are looking for a deep dive in to the secrets of learning improvisation

Don't take this course if

  • You are looking for quick fix superficial hacks
  • You are going to give up as soon as you find the material challenging
  • You are solely interested in learning to play complex chord progressions, as that is not the focus of the Soul Scale course
  • Not willing or able to put in sustained 1+ hours practise per day
