Improvisation can seem daunting to classically-trained musicians, who can feel lost without written music to follow. Many people have always wanted to improvise, or find that they have to teach it, but are unsure how to start.
Now a revolutionary new series brings improvisation within the reach of all players and teachers, even beginners. Designed for teachers and players with little or no experience in this area, The Easiest Way to Improvise promises a new and truly easy approach! This step-by-step process demystifies the techniques of keyboard improvisation, revealing simple, effective ways of using the notes of a melody to improvise, gradually building rich and idiomatic harmonies by the simplest of means. Written-out examples are given at each stage, and there’s even space to write your own ideas down!
Finally, there’s a sample solo to learn (either from the music, by ear, or a mixture of the two) which leads to the chance to do some soloing round the chords. The CD also includes a chance to hear the band playing jam versions of some of the pieces!
It’s as easy as that. This is truly The Easiest Way to Improvise!
