In Mark’s third improvisational DVD, you are welcomed into the entire creative process - start to finish.  In contrast to the esoteric and unapproachable presentation common among so many of the modern artists, Mark and his friend Yana share their knowledge and their love of music - along with their incredible freedom to create on the fly - openly and in a welcoming way.  By their example you will learn how to relax in the studio and not take yourself too seriously as you offer your best without fear or pretense.

 

If you are seeking the means to break out of the illusions to freedom which have bound souls for centuries, then this will be at the very least, an enjoyable experience for you - whether you are looking for true freedom in your musical expression or true freedom in your daily existence.  As is the case with all of Mark’s DVDs, Structure and Freedom will excite and empower you to become a fully alive human person no matter how you were raised, who you were raised by, or what you have been lead to believe.

“Artists do not learn how to improvise music from music teachers. Artists learn musical skills having to do with chords, scales, rhythms, technique, theory and the like, from music teachers and professors.  Improvisation is a way of life intrinsic to artists, whether it is exercised or not. If you are looking for validation, then you will never be a great improviser.  If you are longing to share the music of your soul, then you are already at the top of your game.  Keep on practicing to improve your delivery.”
