There is not doubt about it: good jazz technique depends not only on jazz harmonies or stylistic creative principles but also on thorough classical instrumental training Seen in this light the following studies, if played with symphonic rhythmic precision to improve embouchure, finger agility and range, will even though they contain no elements of style, make a valuable contribution to a player's maturity Nonetheless, so-called academic training need not always be a matter of strict rules; it should also contain free, relaxed, improvisatory playing - for balance and amusement.

At first the student will reproduce; later, in different ways, he can take the initiative Once a sense of rhythm and interval are established, it will be time to develop an awareness of those intermediate values of rhythm, sound production and phrasing which cannot be notated, by extending and making rhythmical the melodic and harmonic lines used in 'Know How' 1 (which serve here only as an outline) Standard scales such as blues scales, pentatonic scales, note sequences and chord sequences - which every player ought to be able to play in all the keys - are of course only a part of improvisation, even when played in a good harmonic sequence But established formulas, patterns fixed in the memory and so playable at any time - these are the building bricks of jazz, of improvisation These constantly recurring patterns, fingering sequences and rhythmical figures form the basis for impromptu playing, for freedom in expressive solo playing Without them there can be no lively music making.

    In the 17th century there were no studies in the modern sense of the word. Of J. S. Bach, however, we know that he wrote pieces of a study nature for his pupils, indeed he made them spend months, and...
