Improvising Music is a challenge for new, intermediate, and even some advanced musicians. Now you can easily learn to improvise discovering your own secret world of music creation.
Song Improvisation is something that comes naturally to some musicians and others struggle with trying to get beyond the basics.
Whether improvising music on guitar or piano or any other instrument there has to be an understanding of harmony.
There’s a new kid on the block with a new teaching method to enlighten and help musicians with music improvisation study.
With Improvise for Real you’ll:
In a very short period of time with a specific step by step method that allow you to discover the pleasure and fun of improvising on your own.
Start composing our own music without having to learn the rules and formulas of reading notes.
Eliminate the frustrations of not being able to play along with the music you hear.
Begin creating and composing your own music, and jamming with others.
Change practice time into creative and inspired sessions of fun and easy play time.
Find your own path to mastering harmony when you find out how it really works.
This new method is a course which will allow a music student to experience a well thought out approach to applied music improvising.
The method uses 5 essential exercises which represent five different levels of musical abstraction, and together they form a complete method for lifelong musical growth. Those exercises are:
- Pure Harmony
- Mixed Harmony
- Free Harmony
Each of the exercises is explored in 7 to 10 chapters to cover the concepts which will need to be understood and used by the student. Completing these chapters and music exercises will allow you to take complete control of your own development and creation of music.
The goal of the method is to enable students to understand any piece of music simply by listening to it, and to express any musical idea that they can imagine without relying on patterns or formulas.
This is very different than the methods we endorse at the workshop. however, we’ve come to understand how much value this adds in the overall ability of the music learning journey. That said, right off the bat, David uses the major scale as the basis for his method to get started.
So in reality it’s still part of the overall music framework. It’s focused on harmony and listening rather than on direct formulas and patterns. This provides another approach to learning music which we fully endorse here at the workshop. If you’ve followed any of my rants you’ll know that I’ve always supported different approaches to learning so that you fully understand and master music.
This teaching method is proving to be very popular and a great way for both the beginning music student as well as the experienced musician to the participate in the art of creation in their music.
One of the things that improvising music requires is to be able to have the play-a-long accompanying tracks so you can test out your new found skills. David has produced a complimentary set of jam tracks to that can be used with the course.
It ‘s got over 35 tracks for helping you as you work and practice exercises 2 & 3 of Melody and Pure Harmony. With the great selection of music styles you are going to get a wide range of exposure to playing and improvising your music.
