CI-002 Improvising Only Using Outside Notes

About this resource

It's important for a student to understand how the notes they use relate to the backing chords or rhythm parts. Each note in a scale will have it's own unique sound or 'color' that shapes the music. When a student accidentally plays a note outside of the scale they will most likely immediately feel that the note was wrong and sounded bad. This creative challenge will change the way your student views outside notes and will help them learn to use outside notes in creative ways.

After completing this challenge your student will be able to use their ears more while improvising and not simply rely on set scale patterns. The student may even be able to use outside notes to add different colors to their improvising and not be limited by a set scale.
