MAIN IDEA of this jazz music lesson
We are moving through time…we have clocks that measure time for us in seconds; minutes and hours…this creates days weeks, months and years. Music is reflective of the time that we are moving through…we are all in time. When musicians struggle with time problems, it’s usually because we are not listening and/or we are trying to execute beyond our capabilities on our musical instrument and have become overly involved with that aspect of playing that we forget to listen to ourselves and the other musicians we are playing with.
Everything works off the time…the melody, harmony, creative spontaneous improvising and the trust that binds a group together and allows for each musician within a group structure the freedom to take chances without the fear of condemnation.
This lecture will help to strengthen one's time feel and the accuracy of the rhythm.
