Creating an improviser ‘s system for jazz standards on the classical guitar

 

A case can be made for a departure from influence and dominance of American jazz musicians in improvisation on the classical guitar. To support this I will discuss and develop studies for improvisation patterns derived from the music of Leo Brouwer. The improvisations will be discussed in terms of their technical application to the guitar and analysed in terms of melodic, rhythmic, textural and harmonic structures and how they are integrated into the whole piece. It is expected that these studies will create a viable system of improvisation for the development of the classical guitarist aspiring to improvisation in performance of jazz standards.
