Why don't classical musicians improvise? Why do jazz players get to have all the fun? And how do they develop such fabulous technique and aural skills? With these three books, Jeffrey Agrell opens the door to improvisation for all non-jazz musicians who thought it was beyond their ability to play extemporaneously. Gently, step by step, Agrell leads musicians through a series of games, rather than exercises. The game format takes the pressure off of classically trained musicians, steering them away from their fixation on mistake-free performance and introducing the basic concepts of playing with music itself instead of obsessing over a perfect rendition of a written score.

Review:

Jeffrey Agrell is one of the most important advocates for improvisation in the classical music world today. His greatest gift is his ability to create games and exercises that make learning improvisation fun not scary. The approach is engaging, insightful and humorous. Players of any instrument will love these fun and imaginative improvisation duets. --Charles Young, University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point

Jeffrey Agrell has been, for many years, one of the most inspiring and enthusiastic advocates for the art of improvisation. His new Improv Duets book is a must have for all musicians. The possibilities here are endless and offer opportunities for musicians of all levels to explore the rewarding world of improvisation. Performers will delight in becoming active participants in the creative process. I highly recommend this wonderful book. --Paul Basler, Professor of horn and composition, University of Florida
