Improvising for the Classical Musician
Taught by Michael Jefry Stevens
Improvisation is not MAGIC!!!! You can learn specific methods and vocabulary that will allow you to begin to improvise without fear. This course can be taught in a private lesson or in a classroom situation. The student will review and study the following musical materials:
Intervals – Triads – Major/Minor Scales – Diatonic Modes
We will incorporate into these studies exercises that will inspire and amuse the student as he/she begins to improvise over simple melodies, rhythms, modes, etc.
This class is NOT for beginners. Students should have a sold intermediate command of their instrument.
