I want to help

Bob Keller

I am a professor at Harvey Mudd College, who also teaches jazz improvisation. I perform occasionally, on trumpet or piano. Since 2005, I have managed the Impro-Visor project, which provides software to help musicians learn to improvise or improve their improvisation skills, by writing out solos over chord progressions. The software helps by color-coding notes, providing a database of licks to which one can add, and by generating new melodies on the fly.
