A month or so ago I was asked by Musical Orbit to write an article about how to get classical musicians interested in improvising. It was an interesting experience collating my own experiences against others and also assessing the musical benefits of improvising for classical musicians. I also got the opportunity to interview composer Sally Beamish for her views. I’m delighted to say that the article has been completed and is up on their website!
