Julius Hofstetter – Tenor Sax – Saxophone Tutor at Northern Rivers Conservatorium, NSW, Australia
As a student and teacher, I have been developing, using Ken’s system, the most complete improvisational system available. Practicing with these excellent recordings is fun, especially as the players and the sound are so fantastic. First, I spent considerable time with the pentatonic exercises, covering all of the different voicings – also, articulation and rhythmic permutations, which are built into these exercises. This focused practice had a positive impact almost immediately, especially with regard to my confidence as an improviser. Absolutely recommended for all students and teachers.
