A Few Useful Ideas for Playing Jazz on the Flute

There are patterns that I have found useful to know as I have listened to jazz and tried my hand at playing in a jazz ensemble.

Real stylistic playing will only come from experience with good musicians and plenty of listening to music. This is just intended to help you make a start on that path.
