After MORE THAN 35 Years of RESEARCH with Thousands of Hours of DEVELOPMENT,
Countless Practice and REHEARSALS hours and Hundreds of PERFORMANCES, Shows and Concerts,
We have developed The System to help YOU CREATE your OWN COMPOSITIONS and IMPROVISATIONS that will AMAZE your family, fans and even yourself.

By Reducing The Cycle of Keys to a common tonic we have discovered THE GATEWAY TO DEVELOPING IDEAS for any style or genre of music improvisation. This really is the first innovation in music theory since the 17th century.

It does not matter what GENRE or STYLE OF MUSIC you play in, or aspire to.
It does not matter what INSTRUMENT you play.

It does not matter if you are a BEGINNER, MODERATE or ADVANCED PLAYER.
It does not matter if you are a SOLOIST, in a BAND, ensemble or in an ORCHESTRA.

miAim.com.au is the only site in the world with THE COMPLETE ANSWER to any question you might have on creating the improvised line.

Our eBooks cover all genre: Rock, Jazz-Rock, Country, Country Rock, Country & Western,  Afro-American Spirituals, Blues, Jazz, Latin, Arabic, Contemporary, Classical and Oriental music.
Swing, Rhythm & Blues, Bosa Nova, Reggae, Techno, Rap, Hip-Hop, Disco, K-Pop, Continental, Easy Listening, Jive, Soul, Blue-grass, Folk, Rock ‘n Roll, Heavy Metal, Grunge and House.

If you are from the North, South, East or West you can start your collection on improvisation TODAY and see how your stock of knowledge builds into a virtual encyclopaedia to help YOU generate UNIQUE IDEAS and create the improvised line. 

We can help you develop your own ideas on Melody, Harmony, Rhythm, Chord Progressions and Improvisation TODAY!

Each book in The Principles of Improvisation collection contains the potential for at least fifty thousand ideas that can be included when creating music composition and improvisation. This will save you money and time wasted in searching for the complete answers to improvisation.

You can begin with any Book from The Principles of Improvisation Collection’s, as what is written in one book, equally applies to the others. Each book is a complete syllabus in itself so that you can ‘specialise’ in one particular aspect (mode) of creating the improvised line.

Why take a life time to learn music composition and improvisation (we have already done that for you) when only a few minutes a day will do. Amaze your friends with innovative sounds, melodies, chord progressions and rhythms that just seem to flow endlessly like the River Nile.

for the rest of your life with any of our Music Improvisation/ Composition eBooks.

All you need is the musical will and ambition – miAim has done the rest.
Check it out! * * You have a chance now to gain a lifetime of creating the improvised line. * *

Music Improvisation An Innovative Method

Excellence can be attained if you:
Care more than others think is wise, Risk more than is safe,
Dream more than is practical and Expect more than others think is possible.
