Improvisation in Indian Music For Western Musicians
Indian Music is a deep and challenging musical tradition for a western musician. One of the main reasons is that it´s mostly improvised , and the teaching is based on imitation of the teacher during years in order to understand the ways to improvise.
In the past 5 years i´ve been teaching Indian Music for western musicians in many countries around the world and developed a system that explains easily how Indian Music works , and how to improvise in it.
I think that the tools one can learn with Indian Music can be applied to any other musical style , and enrich ones ability to improvise in general.
