Karlton Hester on Teaching Improvisation

Learning the way the masters do

"Just recently I've been changing my focus in teaching to be more in line with the way that I work professionally. For instance in my theory class, I started teaching them in a way where its all about playing the instrument, learning theory though the instrument, and getting out and playing in the community, and that being the test, those are like the exams. And so that's enabled me to teach it the way that I learned whenever I've studied with the masters, Joe Henderson or someone like that, it was always that way."
