I'm a senior in high school, which means I'm going to be graduating out of my school's jazz band at the end of this year. I'm currently training two younger bassists, one of whom has decent form but is new to jazz, and one of whom has been playing jazz for a while but has never improvised a bassline and has questionable form. Once or twice a week, we're going to have sectionals that are pretty much set up to be bass lessons, but I'll be working with both of them at the same time. I need to cover a lot of theory, but I also want to get them to a point where they're playing in class on a regular basis. Do you have any advice as for how to handle this? I've worked with bassists before as a section leader in orchestra, but the added element of improvisation makes this a bit more difficult to tackle. To be a bit more specific, I need to cover: - improvised walking lines - improvised bossa/Latin lines - solos, eventually - sight reading - the theory behind chords, scales, and modes, and how each apply to jazz ...and I only have a very vague plan of what to prioritize and how to work through them. Sorry for the long question.
