Where do I get ideas?

 

I was confused…

 

This was a question I had when learning my instrument. 

 

“Ideas come from two places, any clue where?”

 

My mentor Ernie Krivda asked me this as I was sitting in his office. 

 

Umm” I said. 

 

I wasn’t sure if it was a trick question and because of that, I was having a hard time answering. 

 

“Ideas come from other people and yourself”, he said. 

 

Aha! So simple I thought to myself. Even though that was such a simple thought, once I heard this I began to look at music differently. 

 Music is a language and to get comfortable with a language we need to build our vocabulary. 

 

When we learned to speak english, we modeled our language from the people who raised us and over time as our muscle memory got comfortable, we began to come up with our own “ideas” to communicate. 

 

We got ideas to communicate from them and then overtime ourselves.

 

Once I understood that music was the same, I began listening to recordings to learn other musicians vocabulary on my instrument and began to also collect books that had vocabulary inside it. 

 

When I was searching through books, there was a problem though…

 

I never found a vocabulary book that wrote out all the ideas in all twelve keys and also was written in treble and bass clef for all instruments. 

 

The books would usually just have an idea written in the key of C and you would have to figure it out in the rest of the keys. (there is some value in doing it that way but I always wanted to have a vocab book that was written out in all of the keys.)

 One reason I think its a good idea to write it all out sometimes is that you can also treat the vocabulary as little “etudes” to help your muscle memory get comfortable navigating through your instrument. 

This is why I wrote the Improv Idea vocabulary book with ideas written out in all 12 keys and for all instruments in both clefs. 

Normally this book is available just for those that register for my clinics and masterclass's but today we are opening up to you all and the best part is it is only $14.99.  

Warm regards, 

Paul 

P.S.

 Once I taught myself the following mindset I became a better musician  - The hardest part about practicing is taking your instrument out of the case. Get in the habit of leaving your instrument on a stand and I guarantee you will practice more. 

YES! I WANT THIS AWESOME IMPROV IDEA BOOK
