Welcome

Thank you for visiting the Creative Music Blog!

I’m Steve Treseler, a Seattle-based saxophonist, teacher, and author. I launched this site to help musicians from all backgrounds have greater success with jazz and improvisation.

  • Are you a classically-trained musician who wants to improvise?
  • Are you confused by theory-heavy approaches to jazz?
  • Are you an educator who seeks effective approaches for teaching improvisation in the classroom?

If so, you have come to the right place.
