Improvising trains your ear to hear and identify whether you’re producing the sounds you intended, or not. As students get better at this, it can also help them compose their own pieces in the future.

Improvising teaches you to plan and to think ahead and allows for self-expression.

Improvisation interrupts the cycle of reproducing; helping students express their emotions, hone their talents, and develop the unique areas of the brain associated with problem-solving. In the improvised scenarios, brain areas associated with self-expression, making up stories, and recounting memories are more active.

Improvising fosters creativity and creative thinking. It is fun, motivating and it reinforces listening.

It is all about composing on the spot. It’s completely up to the student where to take the music next, giving them a sense of control over the outside world, an outlet to create something positive out of a bad experience. This can actually boost ones physical and mental health.

Some of the benefits of improvisation in music include:

• It provides an outlet to create something positive out of a bad experience.
