The topic, Improvising as Means of Improving Music Pedagogy, draws on the basic assumption that learning different ways of improvisation serve as part of the crucial steps in facilitating musical growth and musical excellence. Our goal during this intensive course is to share experiences and methods we have used while promoting improvisation in our institutes. The challenge is how to share this learning and how to improve, if possible, our music pedagogy through learning improvisation.
