Flutist and jazz educator Michael Abresch leads a workshop for flutists who want to start their journey into playing jazz. Many people are interested in learning how to improvise jazz, but are afraid that it will be a struggle. The jazzimprov101 method shows that beginning jazz can be simple. It can be used by tenured orchestra members as well as absolute beginners. The results can be seen on the website on the demo videos:
