Learn Music By Playing Music is a very important concept for an improvising musician to ponder. Many time students work at mastering musical ideas on their instrument but don’t apply those ideas to real music situations. This can make a musician sound like they are practicing on a gig rather than really expressing deep musical ideas.
For many improvising musicians there aren’t enough creative outlets to help them express the musical thoughts that spring up from their creativity. So to Learn Music by Playing Music becomes a problem. Jam Tracks can really help to give a musician a real musical situation where they can practice and apply the things they have been practicing.
