In the video you can enjoy an improvisation by two advanced students of the Pori Palmgren Conservatoire.
The improvisation cards are suitable for all instruments. Thanks to the cards students of different instruments can improvise together in a group and thus learn from each other. Every now and then when improvising with the cards musical gems are created! In such a situation it’s good to try and repeat the improvisation and record it for the student and thus have a nice memory to save for the future.
There is no right or wrong kind of improvisation and improvising with the cards doesn’t always bring the desired musical results for the teacher’s or the student’s ears. That’s something to discuss and laugh about and maybe to realize how many things we learned after all.
