I'm currently studying classical trumpet at college. However, I also have lots of interests in Jazz and unfortunately, the institution where I study doesn't offer students the possibility to take both classical and jazz classes. My teacher, who is a fantastic orchestral and soloist player, doesn't know jazz at all as far as I'm aware and even if he did, he would have to stick to the curriculum of the conservatory.
All of that being said, I'm looking to complement my daily practice with some exercices that will help me later also develop myself as a jazz player as well. The first thing that comes to my mind is practicing modal scales, and maybe using jazz licks and play them if like they were the second Clarke study.
I don't know if I'm making any sense... please let me know if I don't
Thanks a lot everyone,
