I put together a 2-day (one day major and one day minor) Jazz-focused practice routine for some of my students to work on over their Winter break that I wanted to share with others that might find it beneficial. While I rotate elements out; this is the same routine I use to focus on technique, range, etc.; but I think a major benefit is that it's also a play along so you can rest as long as you play.
The exercises are not licks, but you can use them as such if they help you connect your ideas.
Who Is It For?
Students needing help with range, endurance, and want to focus on their Jazz technique.
It is written for intermediate level students. However, if the range is too high, you can always start in a different spot. If the play along tempos are too fast (or too slow); you can purchase DrumGenius and adjust them as necessary
