A very good, pro quality package

Beautifully produced package in printable pdf form. Everything clearly laid out, The content is so good. It's my second Jazz Duets pack and based on these two I can highly recommend, Jazz Duets productions both for the richness of musical content, the clarity of its explanations and the overall feel and qulity of the package. I've always found bothJazz Duets online tutorials and their pdfs musically very interesting and the material is presented in a style which inspires me to engage closely with it. which I sometimes have my most teasured PDFs professionally printed and bound and I know this one will be one of them.

Natural, Melodic, Dorian + Harmonic Minor (chordal) Exercises

Great material that is challenging and will keep me busy for some time. Well thought out and concise description. If you have never studied minor scales or just need a refresher, do yourself a favor and pick this one up. I usually try to practice everything in all 12 keys so it is more of a zen thing or place I go everyday for meditational reasons. Oh yeah, it is cheap too. Enjoy!

Minor Arpeggio Exercises

All the products I’ve seen and bought so far have been excellent. They are unique in musical approach usable and well thought out. I’m using them to expand my own competencies but also integrating them into my students’ theory & practical classes. The products are interesting & effective. If there was one suggestion I’d bring (and I know this is already done in some cases) is that all the promotional/advertising videos, even if shorter versions, should be included within the download pack content. They are often nice tutorials or explanations as to how to best use the theory content. Then I just have to go to a single page to download everything related to my purchase. A superb service, quality content that is not available elsewhere and our host is a great teacher and has a voice that really compels us to want to listen more to lessons. Thank you!

Just what I needed

I am a returning sax player who hasn't played for about a decade. I was after some good material for woodshedding minor scales, and the completeness and quality of these exercises is spot on.
