Improvisation Step by Step

Do you struggle with Jazz Improvisation?

If so I can relate...

For many years I avoided improvisation completely...

I was embarrassed for people to hear me improvise...

I didn't even want my PARENTS to hear me improvise...

Improvising only made me sound like a beginner again...

I didn't know how to practice improvisation...

Back then, my teachers used to put on backing tracks and just say "have a go"...

They thought that if I just "had a go" for long enough it would eventually 'click'...

But it never did.

My improv stayed the same - no matter how many times we tried it.

What I needed was a clear method

Improvisation might seem like an abstract process that no one can really teach...

But the truth is there's a handful of techniques that jazz musicians use in their solos...

Each technique can be taught, practiced, and learned - just like anything else...

I'm Teaching Improvisation

In my new course - 'Improvisation Step-by-Step' - I teach you one technique at a time...

I'll take you through 19 step-by-step lessons - which will build you from the ground up...

What you will discover:

  • How to know which notes to play over any chord.

  • How to approach any note from below and above.

  • Discover which 3 notes you should end your lines on.

  • Enclosure patterns explained.

  • How to avoid playing all 8th notes and keep your rhythms interesting.

  • Soloing over the Major ii-V-I and Minor ii-V-I.

  • How to practice improvisation in all 12 keys.

  • Discover which chord voicings to play in your left hand.

  • 'Autumn Leaves' Case Study.

  • 'Blue Bossa' Case Study.

  • 'Ladybird' Case Study.

  • Practice exercises following each lesson!


  • Ideal for intermediate piano players (5-10 years playing).

  • Reading music recommended, but not essential.

Teaching style is similar to my YouTube lessons but longer and more in-depth.

Here's what Ray Huckell had to say about 'Improvisation Step By Step':


To cover this much material in private lessons would cost roughly $1000...

But you can get my complete 'Improvisation Step by Step' course for just $150 USD.

Race through the lessons as quickly as you like - and revisit them as many times as you need.
