Jazz Standards Easy
Workshops based on:
  1. Learning the most common arpeggios and scales used in jazz standards and how to use them for improvisation in a creative way, paying attention to musical details like articulation, phrasing and accentuation.
  2. Musical improvisation, creating musical ideas in original and unique ways and developing them in a fun atmosphere.
