Why Should You Join the
Doug Stone Jazz Community?
What if you could teach your big bands and combos to play full arrangements of jazz tunes by ear?
What if every lesson you taught met numerous NAfME national standards?
I will teach you to focus on the most meaningful and important parts of jazz education – not teaching “charts,” actually teaching MUSIC! Your program, your students, and YOU will never be the same!
What if you could play cohesive, meaningful, harmonically appropriate, historically accurate, swinging, tasteful, blues-infused solos on tune after tune?
What if you could learn tunes without ever having to reference a lead sheet?
What if you became a first call jazz improviser?
I know that with my systematic approach designed to help all of us address our jazz improvisation weaknesses and blind spots, I can transform you into the improviser you want to be.
If you have ever felt overwhelmed by the thought of improvising, but are ready to put the time in toward your goal, this is a wonderful way to begin. The explanations and the repetitions are a great way to build a good foundation.
