Exploring Jazz Violin

Instrumental Tutor | Tuition
Subtitle An Introduction to Jazz Harmony, Technique and Improvisation
Instrumentation Violin
Composer Chris Haigh
Publisher Schott Music London
Series Schott Pop-Styles

Jazz is one of the biggest challenges a violinist can face, with the idea of improvisation likely to strike fear into even the best classical players. This book de-mystifies the whole process, taking you step by step through everything you need to know about playing jazz violin. Chris Haigh’s style has been described as humorous, entertaining and addictive. This book is anything but dull! Key areas covered include analyzing a chord sequence; bowing; chord symbols; how to construct your own solo and how the various different branches of jazz, including gypsy jazz, bebop, modal and fusion are explored. This book is packed with ‘bite-sized’ musical portions, all explained and placed in context. As well as a treasure chest full of licks and riffs to use in your improvisations, there are sample tunes with examples of solos. The accompanying CD has 65 tracks to listen to and play along with.

Deborah

London GB Professional violin/viola teacher

This is an excellent book for established students and indeed teachers! It starts with the premise that while may know a lot about playing the violin, you may not know that much about playing jazz on the violin.
The approach is logical and thorough, and right from the beginning establishes a process of how to work on the pieces. Each new element is explained clearly, with examples and exercises to back it all up.
The accompanying CD is great and there are suggested listening lists at each stage to introduce and expand your knowledge of jazz and swing.
A perfect book for independent learning, it's very accessible and not at all daunting for a classical student or teacher to use.
I haven't found any bad points yet!
