PLAY JAZZFLUTE - NOW!
Schott-Music has published my jazz flute school in German and English.
Play Jazz Flute - now!
A Step-by-Step Approach to Styles, Phrasing & Improvisation
SCHOTT MUSIC, MAINZ
Ausgabe: Noten + Playalong-CD
Verlag: Schott Edition
The school is aimed at flutists who can already play the flute and are curious about jazz, bossa nova, funk and improvisation. It starts from scratch in terms of jazz and improvisation and builds methodically.
Even students with less playing experience should be able to master the pieces well.
The book is divided into two parts. In the first part, typical jazz phrasing is explained using duets and various styles are introduced. You can also improvise on the play-alongs.
The second part of the book focuses on improvisation and various improvisation concepts. There are also pieces to try out in different styles.
Modern playing techniques such as simultaneous singing and playing, as well as percussive effects on the flute, which can be incorporated into improvisation, are clearly explained and practiced.
A play-along CD that I recorded with a rhythm section (piano, bass, drums) is of course also included!
Here you can find the table of contents of the school, as well as some sample pieces as a PDF.
