 Re: Improv! Now isn't this a GREAT subject?

I think it's also important to note that singing, whistling, or tapping your foot is a PHYSICAL activity, and that it's important to do these things physically and not just in your head.

I see students think through a song, and often fail to perceive its characteristics--particularly if they have practiced or written something which has turned around to influence them as well. (their equivalent of changing the facts to fit the theory)

What Hans brings up also prompts a question. What is it in our musical education that stopped us from singing along to the radio?

Let me give you a stark example. I worked briefly with a terrific rock & soul singer who was also a very good clarinetist. (she left us to take the first chair in an Army Reserve band) She told the bandleader and I that she wanted us to teach her to improvise. We were incredulous. This woman already knew her clarinet basics up and down, and her vocal improvisations were great. But somehow, she had completely separated the two things.
