Teacher Workshop 6 - Improvisation

Music is a creative art. Irrationally, it is very often taught by accurately performing the compositions of others; bypassing the development of student creativity. Such an approach generates tentative improvisers who are not entirely sure of how to convey the skill of improvisation when they become teachers.
Interestingly, many eloquent improvisers also struggle to impart the skill, since; being instinctive musicians they are oblivious to the fundamental workings of their own talent.
This workshop explores many forms of musical spontaneity. Methodical explanations and graded experiences will liberate suppressed abilities, empowering attendees with prerequisite strategies that ensure for their students:
  • successful first attempts
  • a desire to improvise yet again, so that they can enjoy
  • creative fulfilment in music.
It’s about putting the fun back into this fundamental creative activity.
