Fourteen Major Key Explorations - NEW eBook

I'm happy to announce my third eBook "Fourteen Major Key Explorations." I have combined common practice, modern jazz language ideas to create multiple measure phrases that can be used to develop harmonic awareness and technique in all twelve major key centers.

This eBook joins my first two titles, "Improvising with the Whole Step Triad Combination Scale" and "Improvising with the Diminished Scale" that offer clear and concise explanations of easily implemented techniques that you can use to develop new melodic material for improvisation.
