Lego Building Blocks

In this educational workshop, MacDonald demonstrates the similarities between building LEGO™ creations and improvising jazz solos.  Both require a variety of building blocks; some big, some small.  Playing with units of 2nds, 3rds, triads and seventh chords is fun, easily manageable, and gives students something concrete to manipulate.  Plus it gives their solos structure and cohesion.
