Too many people have never considered improvising on their instrument because they’ve been “Chained to the Written Page.” You think you can only play music when you have a music stand with some written music on it. That’s not true.
All you have to do to get started is try something as simple as playing Mary Had A Little Lamb starting on any note, maybe D concert. I think you’ll be surprised how quickly you can play simple nursery rhymes. After a little success, I encourage you to move ahead and try to play songs you’ve heard on records, radio, TV, etc. Check out my Volume 1 “How To Play Jazz and Improvise.” Have fun. No need to be stuck to the written page!
