How does one learn to improvise? The well-known jazz pianist Julia Hülsmann provides an easy and accessible introduction to Modern Piano Improvisation in this first volume of the series. In 15 easy pieces she shows how to use just a few tones to develop your own improvisational ideas and motifs. This volume contains known standards by great jazz musicians like Cole Porter and Sonny Rollins as well as compositions by Hülsmann herself which vary in style between modern jazz and pop sounds. Volume 1 is aimed at musicians who have already learnt the first technical basics on the piano and now wish to play more freely. Modern Piano Improvisation provides the tools for you to find your own way of expressing yourself on the instrument.
