Easy Tonal improvisation/arranging/Composition
Through a series of easy playing and reading exercises, participants will learn how to create functional melodies over chord progressions and at the same time develop insights into the "magic" of harmonic and melodic relationships. Through the lens of Pachelbel's Canon, melodic improvisation and composition are demystified as we discover how to easily construct melodies following three simple rules. Anyone with a basic music reading level can develop the ability to easily compose melodies, bass lines, and counter-melodies in many styles.  
Throughout the session participants will improvise over the Pachelbel progression and other chord progressions in bluegrass, reggae, waltz, rock, latin, and classical styles!
