Hopefully you are here because you, just like me, are interested in improving as a musician. Getting better at music is a life-long journey, one that I am on, and that my students are on. I keep working at it each and every day. As the title of my website indicates, I am an improving musician.
The goal of this section is to train your musical mind first. You can train your fingers to do all sorts of technical exercises, but unless there is a musical machine behind the fingers that KNOWS what the fingers are doing, then you are really just “typing out the notes.”
The goal of this website can be very simply put: AUDIATION.
I have created many free resources for you to help you get started on your audiation journey.
Take my free courses, Tonal Fundamentals and Rhythm Fundamentals.
Learn basic audiation skills in rhythm, harmony, and melody in these entertaining free courses.
In this course, students will learn the tonal audiation foundation: resting tone as well as tonic and dominant harmonic functions in major and minor tonalities.
Get a copy of my free eBook, "How to Learn the Language of Music."
This very accessible PDF will give you the big picture of the main ways we learn how to audiate rhythmically, harmonically, and melodically, and will serve as a reference for you along the way.
Check out the Improving Musician free student library.
In the free student library, you will find student-focused resources, including eBooks, pattern sheets, PDFs, backing tracks, video resources and more.
