Are you truly serious about learning jazz improvisation and being creative in music composition?
This is the first innovation in music theory since the 17th century. Reducing the Cycle of Keys to a common tonic is the gateway to developing ideas for jazz improvisation.
miAim is to develop a level playing field where all who wish to reach their full potential at jazz improvisation can find the most comprehensive materials to assist them with the greatest expediency to attain their goal.
Jazz improvisation will cease to be an intangible phenomenon.
The Ten Principles of Jazz Improvisation
Principle 1: The Cycle of Modes and the Cycle of Keys are two separate entities
Principle 2: Any scale in the Cycle can be reduced to a common tonic
Principle 3: Reducing the scale to a common tonic establishes the order of the keys affected i.e. the Rotation of the Cycle of Modes
Principle 4: The number of keys affected is governed by the number of notes in the scale
Principle 5: Rotation refers to modulation in the Cycle of Modes
Principle 6: Progression refers to modulation in the Cycle of Keys
Principle 7: Improvisation can be affected using – in part or in full – either the Rotation or the Progression
Principle 8: The Cycle of Modes and the Cycle of Keys are mirror images of each other; i.e. where the Rotation is i – v – ii – vi – iii – vii – iv
and the Progression is i – iv – vii – iii – vi – ii – v
Principle 9: The Progression for the Relative Minor (any mode) and the Tonic Minor (any mode) is identical to that of the Tonic Scale.
Principle 10: Better education will result in more sophisticated improvisation. With the most comprehensive, non-biased information at your disposal the only limits are those set by your imagination.
