I saw this written in the July 2019 newsletter...Another idea Ted had been pondering for a while was how to teach Baroque harmony on a fundamental level….

Do such teachings exist from Ted? (other than the 5 videos and what has already been posted)

Hi D,
That quote came from Barbara Franklin in her book "My Life with the Chord Chemist."
Unfortunately, Ted never wrote out a "how to improvise Baroque," although he intended to do so.
We do have some more lesson pages to post, and there are tons of "scraps of ideas" that he filed under his "Baroque" folder in his "Personal Music Studies" archive.

Many of the lesson pages already posted in our "Baroque" section provide exercises that propel one toward the mechanics of playing Baroque ideas.

Ted was able to extend and combine such ideas and create improvised pieces.  I'm sure he would say that anyone could do it if you spend the time listening, analyzing, and playing a million hours or more.
Ted certainly put in the time and hard work.

So, all we have are Ted's lesson pages/exercises, and the brief explanations given in audio and video recorded lessons.  The rest, I guess, is up to you.
Good luck!
