Hip Hop and Groove Improvisation

By Walter Beasley

Open iTunes to buy and download apps.

Description

Released in the early 2000's as an Educational DVD this app was designed to help students learn the basics of groove Improvisation. It is the way I learned to play and still play and teach using many of these methods. (point of clarification: D Minor lecture is taking from modes, has same effect). As Hip- Hop has changed and become much more rhythmically active this app will still assist those moderate to moderately advanced players seeking to maximize groove improvisation.

-Walter Beasley

Smooth Jazz Icon and Professor of Performance at Berklee College, Walter Beasley has a prolific career as a contemporary jazz recording artist and performer along with a thriving presence in the field of music education. Branford Marsalis writes, "Walter Beasley is an anomaly; a succesful performing musician who possesses the rare skill of understanding the musical process beyond the intuitive". A leading alto and soprano saxophonist and prominent vocalist, Beasley has performed widely throughout the U.S. and the Caribbean for over 25 years.

Considered by fans and critics alike as the heir to Grover Washington, Jr., Beasley was featured in an all-star tribute dedicated to Grover, "With Love", He has performed alongside Chuck Loeb, Ronnie Laws, Gerald Veasley, Gerald Albright, and headlined at the 2011 Playboy Jazz Festival.

He is the highest selling full-time Professor/Recording Artist in history. Recordings include "Sax Meditations" and "Live in the Groove" and "Free Your Mind", which earned Beasley a 2009 Jazz Award. His latest "Backatcha" on Shanachie Entertainment/Affable, features his hot single, Lovely Day. During 2011, “Backatcha” rose to #10 on Billboard Top 50, with his single “The Call” debuting at 30 on Billboard Smooth Jazz charts.

Beasley creates instructional DVDs for saxophonists to help them enhance their instrumental skill and live and studio performance abilities. His instructional titles include "14 Steps To Maximizing your Performance", also currently available for download on his official website. His other best selling videos released through Affable Publishing include "Sound Production for the Saxophone", "Hip Hop Improvisation", "Circular Breathing" and "Performance Workshop".

Beasley also offers individual instruction and consultation services to independent sax artists via Skype.
