Riff-Based Improvisation – Julie Lyonn Lieberman

We will draw on African, Afro-Cuban, Latin, Kansas City Jazz, and rock traditions to highlight the use of riffs as a tool for the development of partnered melodic and rhythmic ideas into successful improvisatory phrases. The ability to develop a catchy, short, rhythmic-melodic idea is surprisingly challenging. By learning iconic ideas from other cultures, we will warm up into the development of your own musical phrases. Then we’ll investigate possible applications for the looper or within an extended solo.
