Learn the basic concepts of improvisation from Gary Burton, one of the most renowned improvisers in the jazz world, including the mental, melodic, and harmonic processes that contribute to the instinctive skills that an improviser puts to use when taking a solo. 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....

This was a truly great course, I learnt so much. And I have been playing piano for almost 60 years! Thanks to a wonderful teacher and musician (brilliant rendition of Chick Corea's Crystal Silence)

Es muy básica la información que da pero útil para comprender la forma de abordar el Jazz y la improvisación. Lo mejor es oír a otros compañeros y leer sus opiniones sobre el tema.

Aprendí mucho de este curso y lo agradezco. Me gustaría ver una segunda parte con más herramientas como el uso adecuado de patrones melódicos, pentatónicas, escalas bebop, etc.

As a saxophonist, understanding chord tones and voice leading is challenging. However, Gary Burton is the epitome of professionalism and simplicity. I gained so much.

Just a perfect improvisation course from Gary's heart! Thank you Gary!! There's only one con, the assignments are peer reviewed only (not teacher feedback at all).
