Features
The Piano Improvisation Handbook by : Carl Humphries


The Piano Improvisation Handbook offers a comprehensive overview of the practical skills and theoretical issues involved in mastering all forms of piano improvisation; including classical; jazz; rock and blues. Whereas most books offer little more than models for imitation and exercises for practicing; this one adopts an approach specifically designed to encourage and enable independent creative exploration. The book contains a series of graded tutorial sections with musical examples on CD; as well as an appendix listing useful scales; chords; voicings; and progressions across all keys; a bibliography; and a discography. In addition to sections outlining how melody; harmony; rhythm; texture; and form work in improvised piano music; giving distinctive emphasis to the interconnectedness of classical and jazz improvisation; there are sections devoted to explaining how ideas can be developed into continuous music and to exploring the process of finding a personal style.
