Acclaimed musician Jeffrey Chappell proves that musical improvisation flows from natural, everyday experiences, and can provide an unlimited channel for self-expression and creativity. The sessions are especially suitable for musicians who feel that improvisation is a mystery or who feel their creativity isn’t being fulfilled by playing only written music. Chappell works with all instruments and every style of music, and benefits newcomers and accomplished improvisers who want to progress beyond their current stage. The age range is teens and adults.
Jeffrey Chappell is the instructor for the popular online video course, “The Definitive Guide to Mastering Music Improvisation”, and has frequently improvised for silent films at the National Gallery of Art. He teaches improvisation as the Director of Jazz Studies at Goucher College in Baltimore and on the faculty of the Levine School of Music in Washington, D.C. He has also taught improvisation to teachers in presentations to numerous chapters of the Music Teachers National Association. As a concert artist, he has performed throughout the United States and abroad.
