Dissertation/Thesis Abstract

A method for teaching jazz improvisation to beginning pianists in a group setting
by Nam, Soyoung, M.M., California State University, Long Beach, 2010, 61; 1490402
Abstract (Summary)

Today, many beginning pianists are interested in learning jazz improvisation and some schools or private institutions offer classes for it. However, some music instructors have difficulties teaching jazz improvisation and students struggle to learn it, because most materials are for persons at the intermediate level and/or exclusively geared towards individual instruction. This paper will explicate a method by which music instructors can teach beginning pianists in a group setting to improvise in a jazz style.
