Buonviri, Nathan
Music Educators Journal, v99 n4 p23-25 Jun 2013
The Partnership for 21st Century Skills lists among its top priorities for students the development of "learning and innovation skills," of which the first are "creativity and innovation." The third National Standard from the National Association for Music Education is "Improvising melodies, variations, and accompaniments." These guiding principles from prominent education organizations urge music teachers to encourage improvisation skill development, which may require them to reevaluate their pedagogical practices.
