What students say...
Although short, this is one of the most comprehensive and well devised courses I’ve ever come across for how one can systematically approach improvisation on jazz standards and popular tunes. It is succinct and I can see it will keep me busy for a long time yet. I have already started taking these ideas around the keys and all the various positions on guitar and I’m now applying them to my favourite tunes. I am very thankful for this course and truly believe students of jazz, who are in any way confused, and are wanting an organised approach to improvisation will benefit immensely from this material. Well done to the teacher of this course . . 5 stars from me
I Have taken private lessons with Angelo via Skype and my playing has Improved exponentially! THIS IS EXACTLY WHAT HE TEACHES IN OUR PRIVATE LESSONS-SERIOUSLY!!! IF YOU WANT TO LEARN JAZZ, HE IS A PHENOMENAL TEACHER & PLAYER!!! Excellent Tutorial! Just get it, get it, get it!!!! WORTH EVERY PENNY! A+++
Excellent course! I never had the chance to formally take jazz improvisation courses but have been learning on my own for several years. This course has given me a fresh look at how chords/scales interact and options that I would never have thought of using when improvising. I am looking forward to more courses from Angelo!
This is a great course! Perfect for beginners and intermediate students learning to improvise in any key. Very detailed and easy to follow! Looking forward to more lessons!!
Ho acquistato il corso circa un mese fà e ne sono stato letteralmente rapito! Lavorando sugli elementi base come arpeggi e scale, inserendo delle note di passaggio e di tensione si impara a collegare le "target note" e,quindi, riuscire a fare delle improvissazioni coerenti specialmente sui tempi medi e veloci. Chiaro ed efficace, adatto a tutti i livelli, certamente non facile, in quanto occorre una buona dose di concentrazione per eseguire gli esercizi con costanza, ma alla fine i risultati arrivano: senza dubbio alcuno lo consiglio vivamente!!!
I purchased this course for my son who just turned 13 years old, and I believe he truly enjoyed this course and found it very helpful! Each lesson is very organized and focused. I'm sure my son learned so much more than he expected. Thank you very much for creating this course!
impressiona já na primeira aula pela simplicidade com que aborda o assunto.
"If only somebody had told me these things before..." this is what most of the time students tell me. I'm sure you'll be soon one of them after this course.
"Jazz improvisation is composing 1 minute of music in 1 minute of time" Bill Evans said.
To compose one minute of music in one minute of time, improvisation must be studied like a science because it's science.
This a step by step improvisation course for all instruments. I've been studying jazz improvisation for 20 years and this course is the result of all those years spent on the piano transcribing jazz masters and trying to understand how to create interesting jazz lines.
