Virtually all musical traditions include elements of improvisation. In this course, students will learn how to practice improvisation in different styles, listen to important examples of musical genres from around the world, and discuss theories of improvisation, communication and creativity. Based on experiencing how each approach to improvisation comes with its own set of parameters and creates a specific sound, students are then encouraged to practice these various elements and develop their own projects. These can draw from acoustic and electronic music as well as improvisation in theater, dance, and multimedia contexts.
