Composing with a looper pedal

Are you curious about looping? In this video I'll show you how the looper pedal works and how easy it is to create your own loops with what you already know from your IFR practice.

Looping is a great tool to compose, improvise and perform, but it can also be a tool to learn music. When you use the looper to create your own music, you are developing your rhythm, your creativity, and you are learning new harmonic material.

In this video I'll show you two different approaches to looping: (1) the metaphor of the music band (using each layer like a different member of a musical group) and (2) the more open idea of blended layers (creating multiple layers in a more freely improvised way).
