Pattern Play offers students of all ages and levels an opportunity to create, explore, and enjoy making music. Four progressive volumes provide a sequential collection of the patterns from which music is made. By playing with these patterns, students will learn to improvise and compose music in a wide variety of styles, including classical, jazz, and popular! This intuitive approach to improvisation gives students a solid foundation in musicality and theory, making it an ideal complement to traditional piano study. Pattern Play 2 explores world-music, Medieval, classical, jazz, and blues styles, and introduces improvisation using modes and seventh chords. Students begin creating accompaniment patterns with intervals and triads.
