Finally! The purpose of this post is to give you all some clear ideas on how to use improvisation as a practice tool. What better piece to showcase some of these ideas than the famous xylophone part from Porgy and Bess! Since I am letting you into my practice session here, I have decided to talk and play throughout the videos, so this will be the only written part. Enjoy and happy practicing!!
P.S. I can't wait to hear what you all think of 12c!!
