Ultimate Chops 16 Steps to Total Musicianship for Contemporary Instrumentalists Book
These exercises are intended to help the serious musician internalize the vocabulary of music that comprises most jazz and classical genres today. They will not only enhance one's fluency with the various musical elements, but they will also help develop the ear, an important aspect that has been glaringly absent from many current pedagogical approaches. The young musician may find these exercises challenging at first, but patience and diligence on the part of the serious student will be rewarded with a strong fundamental knowledge of the basics of music. More advanced musicians and professionals will find these exercises invaluable for shoring up any weak areas in their training, reviewing chords and scales, and providing a means for maintaining current skills.
