What exactly are the steps that lead to ability? In which order should they been taken? What will be required to master each one? These are questions the author has explored in this book, resulting in a rather unique 'one-thing-at-a-time' approach to studying improvisation - one that incorporates discipline, technique, creativity and musical intuition. Each topic is explained and demonstrated using written musical examples and it is accompanied by suggested exercises and a sample daily practice schedule, which can be modified to fit your own needs or liking.

Written by Hal Crook, this book has been used by the Performance Studies Department of the Berklee College of Music in Boston for teaching improvisation since September 1988. Written in standard notation only (no TAB). Includes 2 audio CDs. 186 pages.

THE BREED IS FUNKIN - BASS CLEF EDITION

No reviews

This CD (including music booklet) has not especially been worked out for the use in musical education. It is, on the contrary, an audio CD which has been recorded for sale as a trio CD under my name. Mixing the recordings at the studio, however, gave us the idea to offer this CD Legal Paradizer also as a play along CD. For this reason I have never taken a pedagogic approach to the musical conception of the pieces performed, which, in my opinion, is exactly what makes these recordings so unique. The structure of none of the pieces is, for instance, as simple as that of the tunes on some other play along CDs. Therefore, I have taken the liberty of adding a short explanation and/or comment on every piece meant to make it easier for you to follow the road map of the tunes. Additionally I have explained some stylistic features to help you interpret the individual pieces. Working with my students has shown me how much fun it can be to also offer groove and funk oriented music on a CD to play along. In most of the pieces you do not necessarily have to follow the changes; you should rather develop simple ideas "in time". A real strong emphasis is here placed on the term "groove". 31 pages. Written in standard notation. (NO TAB) 2 audio CDs included.
