“It is all about possibilities and how to use the
different flavours”

Nick Homes

Do you know this situation?


Do you find yourself stuck in the habit of improvising using the same scale over specific chords, such as always relying on the dorian mode over a minor 7 chord?

While this creates a pleasant sound, it lacks the captivating and exotic colours that masterful improvisers employ to truly move and inspire their listeners, taking them on a captivating journey away from their daily lives.

Moreover, solely relying on any single scale for a minor chord can become a restricting trap that hinders your growth as a musician. It limits your creative possibilities and gradually stifles your expressive freedom.

In this course, Jazz Duets addresses this situation by diving deeply into 12 distinct innovative techniques.

These methods serve as powerful remedies to break free from the monotony of repetitive improvisation, turbocharging your playing skills and expanding your understanding of Jazz.

These techniques will unlock the door to a world of musical possibilities, allowing you to create truly evocative and mesmerizing performances that leave a lasting impact on your audience.
