Lesson 4

By introducing the use of “Grace notes” we’re now entering the world of musical embellishments. Embellishments are used to make attractive things even more attractive. Technically spoken it is something we’re creating before, after or with an already good sounding note. This is not just happening on its own, it is something we want to wisely choose and prepare. We’ll learn in lesson 4 about some basic embellishment techniques.
After you have had a chance to improve your skills with an etude, you can learn how to create your melody on a fixed rhythm with a call and response exercise. From there you’ll get started on sixteenth notes with a Jazz Rock feel.
After the ear training lesson, we will end with a Blues arrangement with open choruses to jam.
