If you have a question about this talk, please contact Lucian Stephenson.

This will be an improvisatory workshop on improvisation that draws on three key ideas:
  1. what you have got
  2. stimulus, and
  3. how you respond in the moment

…which will be explored through playful story-telling and music.

Frances Shih is a PhD student studying with Dr. Pamela Burnard at the Education Faculty. She draws on her interests as a teacher and pianist to study how improvisers understand a tune before they improvise on it. Having taught music in a secondary school for fourteen years, Jennie Francis is studying meaning-making in music lessons. She also works as a seconded mentor for the secondary PGCE music course.

This talk is part of the Pedagogy, Language, Arts & Culture in Education (PLACE) Group Seminars series.
