by Barney McClure

Long ago I recognized that improvisational music, particularly jazz, was a language among participants. My approach in There Is No Such Thing As A Mistake is to share with you what I have learned on the bandstand, and how to use that information expediently. My goal is to cut to the chase in what I call Bandstand Theory. There Is No Such Thing As A Mistake will walk you through basic improvisational theory with exercises and demonstrations. It will include the Circle of 5ths, II-V-I's, extensions and substitutions, Blues, left hand stylings, improvisation ideas, and even into higher math for the advanced.

Teachers are finding There Is No Such Thing As A Mistake a great guide for teaching. There are boxed notes throughout for the teacher.

There is also a discussion of how to turn a performance on the bandstand into a win-win for everyone.

A fun book I think you will enjoy.
