Christiaan van Hemert: Gypsy Jazz Violin Improv System

  • Whidbey Island Center for the Arts 565 Camano Avenue Langley, WA, 98260 United States (map)

During this workshop, Christiaan will explain his system for violin improvisation. The system is very different from the standard academic ways of learning improvisation. It is based on a novel approach that will teach you concepts to make you sound like an authentic jazz improviser while avoiding too much complicated theory. This will enable to the user to employ his creativity while still making (a lot) of harmonic sense. It is recommended for participants to be familiar with chord symbols.
