In this workshop, we’ll master 32 gorgeous jazz endings.

We’ll look at the many possibilities of harmonizing the ends of songs based on which scale degree is played. Whether it’s the Root, 9th, 3rd, 5th, 6th, or 7th, there are many chords we can use. We’ll also reference different jazz standards that use these progressions as a way to remember them.

By the end of the course, you’ll have a plethora of endings in your repertoire!
