Basic Principles of Improvisation for Activism

This class has been cancelled.
Jazz musicians draw on some very specific approaches to creating original music while staying mindful of a barrage of sound around them. We will listen to brief selections from great musicians, then draw on some of their useful wisdom for acquiring flexibility and valuing authenticity as we apply it to real circumstances and projects in our lives.
