Thank you for watching and following along with my video for the Carmel Symphony Summer Music Camp. I mentioned some scale, arpeggio and scale pattern sheets for you and here they are! You can download them, print them and when watching the video, follow the music and play along as I play it!

I’ve included the music in bass and treble clef. If you play a Bb instrument, when I begin playing in ‘C’, you can start on ‘D’. If you play an Eb instrument, start on ‘A’. And if you play Horn in F, start on ‘G’. When you get to the bottom of the page, jump up to the top of the page and keep going until you get back to where you started!

Remember, start slow and build up speed. Try to visualize each scale in your mind, and really try to get away from the music as quickly as you can!

Finally, I wanted to leave you with a short list of Jazz Artists you can start to get to know. One of the most important aspects of learning how to play jazz is listening to the music. Playing the scales, arpeggios and scale patterns will build your vocabulary. Listening to jazz will help you tell your story!
