Bergmann, Karen Michelle
MetadataShow full item record
This guide is designed as a reference tool for teachers and students of violin, viola, cello, and bass who are interested in improvisation. Many of the resources examined include jazz theory of harmony and rhythm, and others are more general in scope. Some are geared towards classical musicians who are accustomed to didactic regimens that do not include improvisation and some are suitable as teachers’ reference material. An overview of each resource gives its organization, the inclusion of particular scales and chords, and any multimedia features. Strengths and limitations are also noted. A listing of the resources organized by instrument and skill level is included at the end of the document.
