We talked about what improvisation is (and what it isn’t) and listed some examples (like cooking without a recipe, moments in sports without using a play, (comedy skits made up on the fly) and we watched Gabriela Montero make up a new song on the spot.
After that we watched Dave Morris talk about how to teach improvisation. Remember the rules:
– You must be willing to play!
– You must be willing to fail!
– Failing does not make you a failure!
– Say ‘yes’!
– Say ‘and’!
– Play the game!
– Relax and have fun!
