What are the stylistic considerations of improvisation? Who does it? How do we learn it? How does it relate to the composer's craft? Why should all instrumentalists (drummers, guitarists, bassists, pianists, wind players, string players, and vocalists) learn this art? These questions will be our guide as Berklee College of Music presents its first-ever seminar on improvisation at our Berklee International Network partner, Conservatorio Souza Lima in Sao Paulo, Brazil. The workshop is for all musicians—from classical, to pop, rock, jazz and more—who are interested in learning the art of improvisation from the blues and jazz traditions. The Art of Improvisation: Blues and Jazz will present classes in lecture and master class formats, enabling students to learn about improvisational techniques and practice them in the master class, both in performance and composition.
