An aspiring jazz trumpet player's blog about jazz improvisation and ear training.

Site goes online

Welcome to my jazz trumpet blog! I've still got quite a bit of work to do before this site is truly complete, but I figured it's probably best to add new things over time.

Things I'll be adding in the coming months:

- Audio clips of my practice routine, ear training, and improvisation. I'd like to continually record myself so I can monitor my progress over time.

- Lots of new blog posts with details about my trumpet playing history, embouchure problems, performance experiences, etc.

- Ear training tools: I want to make a randomizer that will display the name of a tune at random, along with a starting note/key. The tool will be available for everyone to use when playing simple songs by ear. It may even allow people to build their own song lists and save them on my site. I'd also like to make a random interval tool. I'll have to give that one some more thought, though.

UPDATE: The ear trainer is now online!

- Fill up the LINKS page

- Add a recommended jazz recording list to the About Me section.

- Add more stuff to this list...
