Learn how to play well with others.

Learn what all the great musicians seem to know intuitively-how to listen, interact and respond, improvise, and become part of the groove. The book and play-along CD will help improve your timing, technique, and reading ability. Become the great player that everyone wants to have in their band. Lessons throughout this book guide you through technique that is specific to playing the viola in a contemporary ensemble. Learn to play melody and improvise over chord changes-essential techniques for any violist playing with a band. Daily practice routines are designed for practicing by yourself or with other musicians. The accompanying CD features outstanding Berklee players and covers a variety of styles including rock, funk, jazz, blues, swing, and bossa nova.

This series coordinates methods for many different instruments, and all are based on the same tunes, in the same keys. If you know a guitarist, bassist, drummer, keyboardist, etc., have them pick up the Berklee Practice Method for their own instrument, and jam together. Topics incude:

  • warming up
  • establishing a practice routine
  • learning by ear
  • theory and technique
  • rhythmic interpretation
  • reading
  • improvisation
  • song form
  • interpreting lead sheets

Order today and apply your technique to working effectively with other musicians.
