Improvisation and pedagogy policy meetings

Researchers from the Improvisation, Community and Social Practice project will meet on December 16th and 17th to develop the first in a series of policy papers to be created by project members. With support from the Musagetes Foundation, researchers, outreach partners, and other stakeholders will come together to investigate the links between improvisation and pedagogy (educational theory and practice). The team will explore questions of curriculum reform and explore ways to incorporate improvisation into music programming and education, with a focus on programs for disadvantaged or under-serviced populations.

So one of the things that improvisation has come to mean in the context of highly technological performance is that improvisation is the last claim to the legitimate presence of a human in the performance of music.
