Jazz Improvisation Tutorial
Have a go at scat singing!
Learning to improvise is a process. Becoming amazing at it take practice, ear training and starting small and building up.

It means you don’t get lost in the music and go out of pitch and it helps your improvisation to stay anchored and sound good – even if you’re scatting over a more complicated chord progression.
