Teach Your Orchestra to Improvise

While there was a time when improvisation was seen as nonessential to string education, today most teachers agree that they would like to incorporate improvisation into their classrooms. The National Association of Schools of Music requires some improvisation be learned while earning a Bachelors of Music Degree; the American String Teachers Association is incorporating more improvisation through the Eclectic Styles area of their conventions.
