How to organize your goals.

How to rank them and prioritize them.

How to make a plan, and how to revise your plan.

  1. I’ve noticed when you teach improv, you completely omit using the MELODY as the framework for building a melodic solo. Fascinating that you skip this step. A player I heard on a recent jazz piano masterclass actually said ‘failure to use melody in soloing is tantamount to musical malpractice.’
    I”d love to have you explain why you don’t teach using the Melody??

    1. Hi Kevin,

      I believe using the melody is a nice tool and guide, but it doesn’t really teach you any of the core elements to learning how to improvise. It doesn’t build a foundation in anyway.

      If you pick an jazz pianist like Oscar Peterson, Bud Powell, Red Garland, etc and listen to your solos, 99% of the time you’re not going to hear them using the melody.

      They’re using a combination of improvisation tools that helps them improvise the way the want. The melody doesn’t allow you to do this, BUT again, it is a nice tool to quote or reflect the melody at certain times in your solo.

      I wouldn’t rely on this by any means though to get better at improvisation.
