    CREATIVE IMPROVIZATION
    SHOSHANNAH SARAH
    PRINCIPLE 1
    thehealingpiano@yahoo.com


    Prerequisite of Knowledge: Nothing

    Who can participate: From a complete novice to a successful professional. Tools: These principles were written for Piano Improvization, however any musical instrument will suffice, even drumming on a table, or using your own voice as an instrument. It is possible to translate the musical principles into another creative art form such as spontaneous art, film, video, movement, choregraphy, and life.


    1. Be in the Spontaneous Moment!



    ~Allow for unpredictability to take place each moment you are playing your instrument.


    ~Allow for notes that "don't sound correct" to exist within the space.


    ~Allow yourself to play what you didn't plan or intend to play.


    ~Allow the music to sound just how it is going to sound.


    ~Be with the sound whatever it is.


    ~If voices of judgment enter, throw them out the window immediately.

    Shoshannah is a composer pianist, educator, therapist, and recording artist whose work has led her from concert halls to multi-media events such as dance, theater, TV, radio and film. Her mission is to bring spiritual unity, peace, and compassion to the world through music.
