Major Scale Saxophone Improvisation Course

For me, being able to play a solo in a song is the most fun and exciting musical experience I’ve ever known. Do you also have this desire of being able to play a great improvised solo out of the blue to express yourself musically?
For many, the entire concept can seem like a mystery. After all, there are chords and all their extensions, scales and different keys and modes to learn right?
YES! This is a huge and vast topic which can take years to master.
I took the great, classic Motown hit “What Does It Take” and built a saxophone improvisation course around it. The techniques and concepts of this course are built entirely on one single major scale. Even better, you’ll learn how these techniques apply to most other songs.
By learning a couple of important theoretical concepts that are related to it. When you discover, learn and understand the concept of a scales modes and chords you will start to see a whole new world of musical possibilities which I then show you how to translate into improvisation.
During the lessons we take a close look at the song “What Does It Take”. We’ll tear it apart by analyzing it harmonically. Learn some basic music theory that will help you play with more confidence and most importantly, how to improvise properly and creatively over it.
*Important note – although these lessons are focused on one song, you will learn that most pop songs are harmonically very simple and so you will be armed with the knowledge and tools to improvise over most songs you will come across.
The music is simple and the few chords aren’t complicated but sometimes putting it all together to make it sound right can be confusing or even frustrating. I know, I’ve been there. I lay it all out for you including my own recorded solos using only the concepts taught in the lessons. You can analyze, learn and copy it and then do it yourself.
This course is truly unique and only available here. It was developed specifically for saxophone students wanting to learn and develop in the great art of musical improvisation.
Owning this course and being a member of HowToPlaySaxophone.org has unique benefits as well because you have access to me and other saxophonists in the members forum where any questions or problems can be addressed very quickly. It’s the next best thing to having continuous private saxophone lessons, without the expense!

Worked through the first two videos and I must compliment you !!
The second video REALLY REALLY filled in the gaps in my thinking about MODES ……..
…………… ESPECIALLY since you are the first teacher to show me the ACTUAL PRACTICAL use of these modes in my playing and my improvisation …………..
DAMN !!! It is like the sun just shined through into my musical brain !!!
You remind me of the proverbial teacher who makes everything simple.
A light bulb has switched on and I am now loosely combining chords and modes of fake book tunes and attempting to compose my own versions. It takes time especially with my long hours at work but progress is being made.
