The Improvisation Companion

Hakim, N.: The Improvisation Companion (Free CD included. 120 pages. 2000)

Preface by M.-B. Dufourcet, UMP


The Improvisation Companion is intended as a reference book for all musicians looking for a form of personal artistic expression on their instrument. The guide uses an educational process of synthesis and is divided into four main parts that deal with the theory of improvisation and of its different components (theme, development and forms). The two appendices cover the basic principles of harmonisation and give a repertoire of themes.
