Jacob Collier explains Harmony (with Herbie Hancock)

In this fascinating new video from Wired magazine, pianist Jacob Collier explains the concept of harmony to musicians of 5 different ages / experience levels:

The thing is, a deep instinctive (and analytical) understanding of harmony can be an extraordinary tool for realising the emotions you want to create in music, and to communicate those emotions to your audience.

But for string instruments, the topic of harmony and improvisation is often not discussed at all when people are learning the violin... we think that's silly!

We're working with violinist Christian Howes throughout January, to share lots of key concepts about using harmony to improvise and perform creatively on the violin. Stay tuned to this blog, or check out his upcoming residency at our London school!
