About the Course:
While many people are fans of jazz and understand that musicians are often "making up" the notes they are playing during a performance, most people-often including musicians, themselves, who are beginning to learn improvising-aren't clear about what exact processes take place to enable this to happen.

The purpose of this course is to introduce the basic concepts of modern improvisation and how to go about mastering the different musical and mental skills involved.

Course author Gary Burton codifies a sought-after approach to improvisation that has been at the core of Berklee College of Music's curriculum for decades. Students who complete this course will know what to practice and how to practice the various aspects of improvising, in addition to understanding how the improviser spontaneously communicates to the listeners through their musical creations.

Classes will commence from 27th January 2014.
