Free Improvisation: Making Music in the Moment


Free Improvisation - what does it mean? How can I use the skills I already have to create freely improvised music? Where do the ideas come from? What happens if I run out of ideas?


Have you ever wanted to try improvisation? Or have you tried it before, but weren’t sure how to expand upon your ideas? This workshop will take you on an improvisation adventure! We will discuss a variety of approaches to the process of free improvisation, using the talents and skills you already possess.


During our explorations, we will build upon your musical skills to create brand new improvisations in ad hoc ensembles. All levels are welcome. Participation in ensembles strongly encouraged - please bring your instrument to the workshop! (If you are a returning participant, feel free to share any improvisation insights you have discovered since last year).
