10 pieces of 10

'10 Pieces of 10' is a book for all musicians who wish to expand their repertoire and knowledge with the art of improvisation. It contains 10 short pieces - in no particular order - which can be played on almost any instrument. Each piece is accompanied by 10 tips on how to improvise using the written notes. All that is required to use this book is the skill to play the compositions; you don’t need any prior knowledge or experience with improvisation. Naturally you also need the willingness to invest time in learning how to improvise. Just as any other musical skills, improvisation needs training. The music and 100 tips in this book aim to make this training both easy and fun, and ultimately help you to start hearing music beyond the written notes. Which is how all improvisation begins.
