UNLOCKING YOUR
MUSICAL CREATIVITY

Discover actionable techniques you can use to feed, nurture,
and unlock your musical creativity.

Which of These Creativity Killing Mistakes Are You Making?

Here’s a quick list of things that kill your creativity

1. A theoretical, mechanical, play by numbers approach to improvisation.

This is 'thinking music' rather than 'ear music'. I don’t care how smart a person is, the thinking mind is not anywhere near fast enough to play jazz. Besides, that’s just not how music works. Your ear is your source for musical creativity.

2. Failure to feed the fires:  Nothing in. Nothing out.

We need vocabulary to play jazz with. The more vocabulary we have the more possibilities we have to create. The more deep the internalization of this vocabulary, the more profound our creative possibilities. Wiggling our fingers over the right chord scale at the right time will never produce creative music.

3. Waiting for luck, the amateur’s approach.

The amateur struggles with writer’s block. Waiting for something good to fall into their lap.

The pro (I mean a cat with a pro attitude, not necessarily a working musician) creates because they must.

They use systems, methods, techniques and tools to get the ball rolling. Overtime these things become habitual and natural. These are things like ‘combinatory practice’, ‘forced modification’, ‘thematic development devices’, etc.

After awhile the pro isn’t even aware he’s using these things. It’s just natural. And after YOU start using these for a time they will become natural and normal for you too.

4. Creative Atrophy.

Use it  or lose it, Bub. The creative cat creates regularly. By writing, by playing, by exploring, by attending sessions, by journaling, by experimenting and so on.
