Online jazz violin lessons

EXTRACTS FROM ONLINE JAZZ VIOLIN LESSONS

Here are some extracts from online jazz violin lessons I gave in spring 2021! First of all, a first series of lessons in French where I talk about pentatonic scales, and then a series about the jazz sound on the violin, this time in English!

THE C MINOR PENTATONIC SCALE:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

PART 1: I SHOW THE
PENTATONIC SCALE AND HOW TO PRACTICE IT

PART 2: I SHOW HOW TO PRACTICE
THE SCALE WITH SKIP NOTES

PART 3: BLUES IMPROVISATIONS
WITH THE C MINOR PENTATONIC SCALE AND THE C BLUES SCALE

I show you how I improvise on minor and major blues with the pentatonic scale of C minor; then with the BLUES RANGE of C resulting from the pentatonic of C minor. I also play phrases built on the blues scale, which I repeat over the entire blues structure.

PART 4 : IMPROVISATION EXERCISES ON

THE BLUES SCALE

I first play the theme of minor blues Mr PC, then I offer exercises and tips by improvising on this structure; using the blues scale. I insist on the repetition of patterns to help build a dialogue!

HOW TO FIND A JAZZ SOUND ?

 

PART 1 :

Have you ever wondered how to have a jazz sound on the violin? Haven’t you found some ingredients yet that would make your sound less classical and more swinging? And yet, these ingredients exist! I use them all the time … and I list them in THIS VIDEO! Yes, today I have decided to give you free access to an extract from an online group lesson I gave in May 2021, and in which I explain how you get a jazzy sound on the violin! These elements, as you will see, are very concrete …

PART 2 :

In this video, I explain how to attack the note in order to have a more jazzy sound, and I do exercises live with you to learn to master the ghost notes with vibrato!
