Jazz Improvisation for the Classical Pianist
"Music is a language...to improvise, [one] has to study as if they were learning a new language...The secret is in the thinking...[for example] in learning...the major triad, one must practice that theory from every angle imaginable. The major triad must be learned in all keys, all registers and all voicings. [One] must improvise with the major triad, compose songs using it, be able to recognize it played by another musician and, most of all be able to think creatively with it. Once the major triad is mastered, then...assimilate the minor, augmented and diminished triads in the same way."--introduction.
