Below are some ideas on how to spend your time. Yes, it is a lot, but over the course of a week and little bit of each can be worked on. Over time your experience will accumulate.
- Listening to recordings and determining:
- Solo order
- Solo length: full chorus/half chorus or whatever
- Style/era: Traditional, swing, bebop, Modern, Post-modern
- Cool licks to learn, find at least one to learn
- Slow Warmup playing ii-V 1 chord progressions with scales or broken chords in the right hand with chord voicings in the left hand. Select the keys from your current repertoire.
- Sight reading: piano music, lead sheets, whatever…
- Comping chords, if you are a beginner practice writing them out first.
- Phrasing questions: legato, detached, swing 8ths, dynamic shaping over the phrase. With the study of phrasing in jazz I suggest listening to a “master” play the phrase and then mimic it. Same phrase, different players, different approaches. You will learn a lot of interesting things with this phrase
- Transposing a simple lick in multiple keys, see step 2 for keys
