One of the biggest miss I hear about jazz improvisation is that you need to know a ton of music theory. And personally, I couldn’t disagree more.
In fact, I know some musicians that don’t know any music theory and can’t even read music, yet are incredible jazz improvisers. I think learning things by ear and learning jazz standards and all these stuff is probably more important.
However, I do think knowing music theory is very important and can be helpful and so, I want to simplify things in today’s video and go over the 4 music theory concepts that I think you need to know.
