Using these accessible books and recordings, anyone can learn to improvise! Developing Musicianship through Improvisation offers an approach to learning music that is similar to the process for learning a language. Just as it is possible for everyone to engage in meaningful conversation, it is also possible for everyone to engage in meaningful improvisation. Throughout these materials you will learn repertoire and build a vocabulary of tonal patterns, melodic phrases, rhythm patterns, and rhythm phrases you will apply in many ways. In the course of this study, you will read and write music, connecting your improvisation to meaningful experiences with notation. Each unit in Developing Musicianship through Improvisation is based on a familiar tune with six parts:

  • 1) Repertoire
  • 2) Patterns and Progressions
  • 3) Improvising Melodic Phrases
  • 4) Seven Skills for Learning to Improvise
  • 5) Reading and Writing, and
  • 6) Learning Solos.
