Trebor - the Original Naked Kitty / Trebor occasionally exhibited ancient Roman tendencies. I once saw him eat until he had to make room for more, which he did (right next to the food dish). We kept him on a diet after that.

 

 


ARTICLES on JAZZ

The Indie Bible
Promote your music to the world!

The articles presented here first appeared in the JazzErie newsletter as monthly installments. They have been updated and added to to create a larger body of informative material. Jazz Perspectives present a general history of jazz, with insight into the ways jazz is created. The Theory Den Jazz Theory articles will help musicians interested in bebop to master their craft. Also included in the Theory Den are explanations and examples of Reharmonization. Some of my favorites are the standards which have been reharmonized using tritonics, or "Giant Steps" changes.

Structural Elements for study  

My degree from Berklee is in composition, and as I consider improvisation to be spontaneous composition, my studies of American Music merge these two streams. As I develop this aspect of my website, I will add more on improvisational techniques, which will have broader applications than strictly jazz. I have found mastering any system of improvisation gives you control over some facet of your playing that you did not have before. This begins with the new OVERVIEWS section, which organizes the structural elements of music for the practicing musician.

Please note this section will remain a work-in-progress for some time to come, but there is plenty to get you started!


 

In addition to being a private music instructor for over thirty years, I have given clinics and workshops in school systems and University classrooms in Pennsylvania and New York. A strong desire not to misinform, and a wife who is an English professor and experienced editor, have motivated me to get the facts as straight as possible before embarking on these endeavors. Please feel free to contact me with any comments or corrections.
