Improvise for Real is about much more than improvising. It's about truly understanding music and being able to enjoy creating it yourself. Maybe you dream of improvising your own solos in concerts and jam sessions. Or maybe you imagine yourself playing songs with friends at parties and expressing yourself with total confidence. Maybe you have ideas for songs and you would love to compose your own music. You can be doing all of these things much sooner than you think! All you need is a simple understanding of how music really works and how to connect with your own musical creativity.

This understanding doesn’t come from memorizing other people's "licks" or studying music theory on paper. You need to explore and discover our musical system for yourself. In other words, what you really need is a creative daily practice that lets you understand music from the inside out, and truly create your own music.

Improvise for Real will take you into this beautiful world of sounds and show you how music and harmony really work. You will learn to understand any piece of music just by listening to it and to express yourself with complete freedom in any musical situation.

The desire to express your own music

If you are reading this, then you can probably identify with some of the following frustrations, which are a lot more common than you think:

  • Are you mystified by people who can pick up their instrument and immediately begin playing along with any kind of music?
  • Have you ever felt ashamed of your own musical ability, just because you couldn’t improvise over a particular song or couldn’t find the right notes?
  • Do you wish you could play your favorite songs off the top of your head without any need for sheet music?
  • Does your heart sink when you see a page full of complicated chord symbols, because you have no idea what’s really going on?
  • Do you feel like you're struggling to connect scales and arpeggios together to make a solo? Do you wish you could weave melodies effortlessly through the chord changes and truly express yourself creatively?
  • Would you love to be able to participate in jam sessions and feel totally confident and sure of yourself, no matter what’s going on around you?
  • Do you dream of being able to discover and express your own music, the music that lies deep inside your imagination?

You’re not alone!

If you answered “YES!” to any of the statements above, I want you to know that you’re not alone. In fact, there was a time in my life when every one of these statements applied to me! It took me a long time to find my own path in music, and for more than ten years I have been helping other people find their path as well.

The problem isn’t you. The problem is the way you practice.

Everyone can create music. The key to accessing this natural ability is to understand how to study music in the first place. You’re not going to develop your creative abilities if you are stuck practicing scales all day. If you want to IMPROVISE and COMPOSE and CREATE your own music, then you need a daily music practice that has you doing that!

With Improvise for Real, students learn about music through playing music. We study music through jamming, playing and creating music ourselves. You’ll have complete creative freedom to make music however YOU want to at each level of the method. But the method is organized so that while you are jamming, you are also developing a very deep and clear understanding of how all music works, so that you can then go on to express yourself with complete confidence in any musical situation for the rest of your life.

The key to understanding music

The only reason why music seems so complicated to most people is that they are trying to understand it through rules and formulas, and it’s just not possible to get any real understanding of music unless you experience it for yourself. You need to create the sounds yourself and hear them over and over again. You need to play with them freely, combining them in all different ways. In other words, you need to improvise. Most people falsely believe that you need to understand harmony before you can improvise. But actually it’s the other way around. You need to improvise in order to understand harmony!

So really, learning to improvise is not the “goal” of my method. Improvisation IS my method. It’s how we investigate new concepts and discover their meaning for ourselves. And it’s something that YOU can begin doing right from the first day. I understand that this might sound surprising or even intimidating. I think improvisation is just very confusing to most people and it’s hard for them to imagine themselves creating their own music. Until you actually do it, it’s hard to understand how it’s even possible to just “imagine” and create music. It all sounds very mystical. But it’s actually surprisingly logical and it’s so much fun that once people try it they instantly “get it” and never want to stop.

The Improvise for Real method

Improvise for Real is the first method that shows you the entire path to improvisation mastery. The method organizes the complex and sometimes confusing musical studies of the improviser into a simple and elegant framework called the Five Exercises.

Exercise 1: Landscape – Imagine being able to see in your mind the entire map of a large city at once. That’s how we would ideally like to feel about our entire musical range. Exercise 1 is where we develop our ability for movement and visualization so that we can paint any musical shape we want, anywhere on our instrument.

Exercise 2: Melody – In Exercise 2 you will learn to understand the sounds and melodies in the music all around you. If you've always wondered how some musicians are able to play any song they know in any key effortlessly, IFR Exercise 2 is where you will learn how to do this. For the first time you will be able to recognize any melody by ear and to play it instantly in any key on your instrument. You will also learn to express your own musical ideas exactly as you hear them in your mind.

Exercise 3: Pure Harmony – At this level you will begin to work with chord progressions and you will learn to weave your own melodies effortlessly through these chord changes. If you've ever struggled to "keep up with the changes" because each new chord requires you to build a whole new scale in some new place on your instrument, IFR Exercise 3 will show you how to solve this problem forever. You will learn to see the "big picture" of the harmony so that you can create infinite melodies with complete freedom.

Exercise 4: Mixed Harmony – At this level you will have the all the tools you need to improvise over advanced harmonies like those found in jazz standards, bossa nova and other modern styles. You will be able to sit in at jam sessions and improvise with complete confidence no matter what tune is called. If you are fascinated by the rich and exotic sounds of jazz music, Exercise 4 is where you will learn to create these sounds in your own music.

Exercise 5: Free Harmony – Students who go as far as Exercise 5 will receive an introduction to the fascinating world of free improvisation. You will learn to apply your knowledge of tonal harmony in a more abstract way that enables you to instantly respond to whatever is going on around you musically and to participate in this conversation without needing written chord changes. You will learn to depend on your ear and your imagination as the only orientation you need.
