Creative Improvisation Workshop for Musicians

September 6 @ 10:00 am - 12:30 pm


Mr. Ernest Dawkins and Mr. Taalib-Din Ziyad, leadership of the Association for the Advancement of Creative Musicians, will lead a session on creative improvisation. Mr. Dawkins and Mr. Ziyad will discuss concepts, precepts and aesthetics. Keep in mind that the following concepts are not rules, only footnotes for consideration. “Above and beyond all discussions of music technique, theory, improvisation and aesthetics, we must remember that music comes from the soul. No matter what, you have to be ‘in the music.’ The spirit of the music is the most important element of any musical expression and improvisation.”

Please bring your instrument with you to this event.
