Hi... Tim Richards IBS students...just shows this thread hasn't come to an end...it will continue as long as people put in..I have other interests lately but will get back to playing blues and boogie....so it is importent that other people interested in this thread post every now and again no matter how trivial the piece you are learning or playing....there is enough learning in the IBS to keep any one busy for years.......

Hello folks, I just ordered this and Metaphors For Musicians because so many people here are raving about them. I am mainly interested in composing my own music (classical), and improvising (jazz). I hear this book is a good starting point for the latter. Am I correct in this assumption?

I also have Levine's "The Jazz Piano Book", which is great, but I'm finding that the lack of a structured approach in it isn't getting me very far. Maybe saving it for later is the best idea?

Good idea regarding the Levine book. For as brilliant as most folks regard it, I totally agree it lacks a structured approach for me. Tim Richards book is more to my liking and opening my mind and ears.

Good luck to you.

That's good to know! I thought maybe I was missing something about it. I look forward to getting started with IBP.

Yes, it is.

I'm finding it more difficult than I expected, to make the transition from IBP to "Exploring Jazz Piano". It's learning a new language, all over again. But knowing the IBP material certainly helps.

Going into "Exploring Jazz Piano" from a straight "Here's the music, play the piece" background (or a pure "ear-based" background) would be _real_ culture shock.
