Spontaneous Improvisation

n my January 2016 blog, “Discovering Your Musical Purpose”, I wrote:  

 “As a long-time music teacher and performer, I believe that a well-rounded musician needs to be able to do the following:

  1. Sight-read scores written with standard musical notation.
  2. Improvise spontaneously using chord progressions.
  3. Accompany a singer or solo instrument (using a keyboard) from a score that uses only a melody, lyrics, and chord symbols.”
