UWA School of Music Presents - Fridays@5 : Nicholas Bannan: Music Language and Improvisation Other events...
Now in its third season, Fridays@Five is the ideal way to kick-start your weekend! Each session offers a unique musical experience to delight all music lovers, from young artist led concerts to informal musical drinks on the famous grassy knoll, behind the scenes workshops to lectures and masterclasses. Join us each week for a delightful musical surprise!

Improvisation remains the principle manner in which a great deal of musical performance around the world is brought into being. For the last two hundred years in the Western Art Music tradition, improvisation has taken something of a back seat, the focus being placed on music reading and technical accomplishment in playing compositions written by others.

A new confidence in the value of improvisation to support musical learning has developed over the last generation, influenced both by a revisiting of historical practice, and an approach to music that views it as a form of thought that can express the creative impulse of the individual.

In this session, Dr Nicholas Bannan will work with four student volunteers to illustrate some of the ways in which improvisation is becoming a part of the musical experience of all our students.
