Learning to improvise on Twelve-Bar Blues could not be easier with this book. It contains all steps needed to make a complete solo. Order today!

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.And, one more thing . . . Less is more, remember that you are not paid by the note and there are no wrong notes in jazz. If it sounds good – keep it!

    My students LOVE this book!
    With a studio licence it would be an important part of any teacher’s ‘must have’ books. Step by step the student is helped through understanding what they need to do to be able to improvise.
    I just wish I had this book when I was classically trained all those years ago.
    Thanks Elena for sharing so many of your talents!
