Pattern Play offers students of all ages and levels an opportunity to create, explore, and enjoy making music. Six progressive volumes provide a sequential collection of the patterns from which music is made. By playing with these patterns, students will learn to improvise and compose music in a wide variety of styles, including classical, jazz, and popular! This intuitive approach to improvisation gives students a solid foundation in musicality and theory, making it an ideal complement to traditional piano study.
Pattern Play 3 explores world-music, classical, jazz, boogie, blues, and popular styles, and introduces improvisation using scales and modes with one flat and the major blues scale. Students also begin creating music with triads, and 7th, and 9th chords.
