Gaining Independence: An Interview with Jamey Aebersold
Howey, Brad
Teaching Music, v17 n6 p26-29 Apr 2010
Jamey Aebersold is an internationally known saxophonist and authority on jazz education and improvisation. His series of jazz play-along book and CD sets are valuable tools for music teachers, and his weeklong summer jazz workshops--now in their thirty-third year at the University of Louisville in Kentucky and thirty-seventh year overall--have had a profound effect on musical communities around the world. His untiring dedication to the belief that anyone can improvise has inspired countless thousands to learn and play jazz. He believes that if a teacher teach people how to improvise, they can play music the rest of their lives. This article presents an interview with Aebersold on how learning to improvise can liberate young musicians.
