Each week I write out a new challenging jazz line for my own piano practice routine. I try to create a line that just "out of reach" in some technical way. This could mean the line has a challenging rhythm, melodic intervals or harmonies I can't quite hear yet. Dedicated practice of these lines has already greatly improved ability to hear new improvised melodies. I hope it can do the same for you too.
Here's another jazz line that should make for some challenging ear training. Follow the steps in the video to start learning how to practice and improvise your own modern jazz melodies.
