Do you need a fun lesson to teach & practice improvisation? Music Improvisation Chant feels like a game. The simultaneous instrument activities and rotation pattern that accompany this original chant put students at ease while learning to create their own music. Because multiple students are improvising at the same time, no one is "put on the spot."
