Through performance and ensemble interaction, this unit helps students develop vital aural and improvisational skills that will significantly enhance their creative and compositional process. Students experience the wonders of ‘real-time’ creation of music without the aid of notation on their respective instruments and are encouraged to develop their intuition while learning to rely on their musical ideas. Class feedback and discussion of each in-class improvisation provides weekly opportunities for formulating individual compositional ideas regarding melody, harmony, rhythm, form and structure.
