Improv Exercises for Classically Trained Beginners is a 21st-century educational concept based on the belief that, in addition to the regular routine, classically orientated piano lessons should also include elements of improvisation. Although this book only deals with blues scale improvisation on the basic twelve-bar blues with only three chords, it will bring you to a firm understanding of how to structure your approach to improvisation. You will also be able to apply this new skill to another very popular element for playing jazz – comping, or as a classically trained pianist would say, accompanying a band without the score.
