If you remember the 3 Pillars of Improvisation from our Improv series, this course mainly deals with the 2nd Pillar of Improvisation: “Connecting Chords Logically.” Now that you've gotten a handle on what notes you can play, you have to really solidify your understanding of targeting specific notes and how to aim at them. This is foundational stuff! In other words, if you have a really hard time aiming at the right notes at the right moments, it’s going to be way harder for you to freely play with interesting rhythms and create riveting phrases for your listeners.
In this course on Improv and Chromaticism, we'll outline the "basic moves" that you need to make in order to perfectly target and approach any note you want to at the right time. Your job is to take these foundational techniques and TRAIN THEM: practice targeting notes that you’re not used to targeting; practice delaying or anticipating an approach so that you can pull that technique out of your hat at a moment’s notice; and make sure to try these studies in multiple keys, at multiple tempos, on many different standards and chord progressions!
