Shelton Berg: The Goal Note Method

Regular price £50.00 Sale

A fundamental system for playing changes, as taught at the Berklee College of Music. Intended as a programmed text for a 2-4 term improvisation course, the approach is consonance-based, emphasizing structural pitches and harmonic considerations as opposed to scale-derived melody. Starting with the fundamentals, it progresses through to advanced principles, covering all the principal aspects of jazz improvisation on the way. Clearly explained and with copious examples, this is a linear approach with the emphasis on goal notes in the improvised line.
