Creativity in Improvisation is the breakthrough series that teaches how to listen to tunes, and to discover the changes within tunes, as the basis for improvisation. The CD for each book includes a carefully sequenced set of songs, bass lines, tonal and rhythm exercises, and extended backgrounds over which to improvise. First, this series asks you to listen to songs--folk, jazz, and classical. Next, you learn to sing and play the melodies and bass lines of these songs by ear in a variety of different ways. The idea is not to memorize these tunes (just as you don't memorize everything you speak). Rather, the goal is to begin to hear the 'changes.' Hearing harmonic progressions ('the changes') is fundamental to improvisation.
