"Me? Teach Improvisation to Children?" in General Music Today, a publication of MENC.


Diane Persellin, Editor of General Music Today writes: "Julie Scott opens this issue by asking the question, “Me? Teach Improvisation to Children?” She examines the first three of John Kratus’s seven levels of improvisation, which are most appropriate to elementary school. These three levels are Exploration and Process-Oriented Improvisation, which lead to Product-Oriented Improvisation. Scott shares some excellent creative strategies for encouraging our students to improvise within a structured, sequential program. Yes, we can all learn to teach improvisation!"
