Beginning Improvisation is a simple method designed to teach students of soloing
instruments how to play melodies over Blues and Dominant 7th Progressions.
 
E-Books with mp3 backing tracks are available now
for the following instruments:
 
VIOLIN FLUTE CLARINET
ALTO SAXTENOR SAXBARITONE SAX
TRUMPET TROMBONE VIOLONCELLO
PIANOJAZZ GUITARBASS GUITAR
 

Why E-Books? You can download them - there are no shipping costs or fossil fuels used in delivery. They also save paper because you can print out one section at a time, only using what you need right now. That's really good for our environment and cost effective for tightening budgets.

 

Students of the Beginning Improvisation Method learn to create their solos using notes from the Blues Scales and the Dominant 7th Scales, through all 12 keys.

 

Using a few notes at a time to play over the chord changes, and then adding more notes as skills improve, players build on their successes and increase their confidence.

 

As a private music teacher, I've created simple action steps so that students at any level are able to improvise solos and have fun while learning! With regular practice, by the time you get to the last page, you have the skills to play in any key.
