String Groove ® is a method created by violinist Edgar Gabriel to teach improvisation and alternative styles to string players. String Groove instructs with a method book, CD, workshops, courses, contests, string ensembles and now the new String Groove App for Apple iPad.
STRING GROOVE ENSEMBLES
String Groove Ensembles are for string students, teachers and professionals who would like to add new (eclectic styles) material to their repertoire. Improvisation sections are included in many of the pieces, however, they can also be performed without improvisation. For more information, audio/video and to download scores of String Groove ensembles see below. The ensembles are only available through the EGI Store.
Edgar's Ted Talk "Improvisation for a Better Future"
What can you do that a computer can't? Improvise! Improvisation is productive, spontaneous play that can be utilized in any discipline. In his talk, Edgar Gabriel encourages us to consider a better future with free-thinking ideas and innovations -- all spurred by improvisation.
