I had a think about yesterday’s post last night and it got me thinking more about teaching improvisation. I think that the first step to improvising is having the confidence to try something, and the second step is to understanding why it does or doesn’t sound good. So today my grade 10 students are going to use the dorian scale function in garageband iPad to improvise a solo for Miles Davis’ So What and we’re going to listen to each others’ compositions and evaluate them. Now I just have to figure out how to upload an mp3 of what they create on to this blog!
Here it is –>
P.S. This took me ages to figure out how to embed. So proud of myself 🙂
