Week 4
Please practice the C E G Reading Exercises (here)
We learnt a low B today (2nd valve / 2nd position).
It should sound a little bit lower than C (here)
See if you can get even lower!
 'St Thomas' (the new jazz tune)
We're all learning the trumpet 2 part first - trombonists too (here)
Listen to the Sonny Rollins' original version and our demo version (here)
We'll start learning the other parts next term, but feel free to work ahead!

'C Jam Blues'  

Play the 'head' then try improvising (making up as you go along) your own

short riffs with the backing track (here).  

Start by using just these 3 notes: C F and G
