Jim Snidero presents Learning to Improvise
Improvisation is a scary proposition for many music students and teachers. But the word "improvisation" is fairly misleading, as much of what an improviser uses to create a solo is actually preconceived, and therefore can be learned and developed. NYC alto saxophonist and author Jim Snidero talks about ways jazz musicians use jazz language to methodically learn to improvise. The workshop includes specific vocabulary and timing concepts to help aspiring improvisors construct solos that are both logical and musical. As with many things in life, it's all about preparation.
