Overall an informative, interesting, and well-presented course. However, as a newcomer to jazz (classical background), it took me a while to figure out how to apply the concepts and sound good. I particularly would've liked some demonstrations/ analysis of these improv techniques over real music. Also, the peer learning aspect could be improved since the quality of peer evaluations was sometimes inconsistent. Other than that, my musicianship improved and I would recommend this course.

excelent course

Awesome class! Gary is the real deal. His depth of understanding on the subject is rich and the way the course is organized is well-thought-out. I do wish the improv assignments were graded directly by the instructor and not TA's or peers, however.

Excellent course with the aclaimed Musician Gary Burton ,very good study material with clear concepts, tips etc. Superb for those who begin to want to develop and/or improve their jazz improvisation level.
