More ways to think about creative improvisation in Jazz and other styles for violin viola cello and other instruments:
We experience the natural world in all of its diversity without judging it as right or wrong.

We naturally experience music the same way. I witnessed this over Thanksgiving in both of my 6-month-old nephews.

We're born to create free from judgment. We learn to be self-conscious through training.

To regain our natural ease with music, we can untrain/retrain.

If you're an intermediate-advanced player and that sounds worth doing to you, get your instrument and play along to this video to EXPAND and OPEN your ears.
