This unit aims to provide students with a range of information and associated skills related to the improvisational expression of musical ideas. There will be an emphasis on immediacy of realisation through a range of situations and experiences where improvisation is required. The focus will be on defining the understanding of improvisation beyond stylistic, genre based and idiomatic constraints in order to enhance the student's ability to respond creatively to stimuli in a variety of contexts. Students will participate in solo, small and large group improvisations and will use a a range of mediums both traditional and non-traditional.
