For the beginner, it won't be too different at all. The focus will be on fundamentals—though materials will likely be different, depending on the age of the student. For an older student with some experience, we can jump right in with learning the specifics of jazz. (That basically means learning jazz pieces, learning the basics of improvisation, etc.)
No experience is needed to start! For a student with no experience or basic skills, we will work on those as we address other aspects of playing jazz.
