Someone once wrote that “Mr. Pilc starts at Mars, and then goes from there. At once stunning, dumbfounding, compelling & brilliant beyond description.”
Besides being a prolific leader, composer & educator, Jean-Michel Pilc has played with an impressive list of musicians: from Roy Haynes to Michael Brecker, Marcus Miller to Kenny Garrett, and with Harry Belafonte as Musical Director.
Inside of “True Jazz Improvisation”, Jean-Michel shares with you his philosophy of improvising not being about soloing, but about creating a piece of music on the spot – alone or in a group setting.
He will guide you with perfect clarity through surprisingly simple physical & sensual practice routines, which will dramatically change the way you perceive rhythm, melody, your band mates & yourself.
A Music-Changing Process for ALL Musicians, Improvisers & Composers!
You’ll learn about:
* Experiencing Rhythm as naturally as Your Heartbeat (Internalization)
* Playing with a Rhythm Section & REALLY feeling it (For Soloists)
* Learning the Language of Music, beyond Notes & Scales
* Orchestration – Hearing ALL Instruments clearly & simultaneously
* Improvising in a Group Setting
* Melodic Improvisation & Inspiration
* Creating a simple & meaningful Song
And LOTS more…
“Those looking for advice on what scales to play over chord changes should look elsewhere. This is a lesson on instant composition and orchestration. By the end of the lesson, you should have a good idea about the path Jean-Michel Pilc took to arrive where he is now.
He will provide new ways to challenge yourself harmonically, melodically and rhythmically.
He will show you how to think like a bass player, and drummer and a pianist all at the same time.
His examples are simple and accessible, but extremely convincing.
Get this if you want some new ways to develop your ear and start thinking like you’re a band.“
Christophe Ludet, Bethesda, MD, via Amazon.com
“A self-contained treasure trove of musical thought. Pilc’s way with words is evident at every turn, and his statements truly resonate.
Orchestration, melodic development, singing, time, flow and clarity in presentation are all up for discussion.“
