Learn Music Through Improvisation

To learn how to play instruments with the Improvisation Learning System does not need special skills or previous knowledge.

This system uses our natural skill that is called improvisation: in the act of playing an unknown instrument we improvise, and during this experience we learn.

In this situation we are not concerned about playing right or wrong. The psychological block of being afraid to make mistakes doesn't exist in this context, so you are in a better, relaxed condition to learn.

Furthermore, the Improvisation Learning System shows how to open new doors of your creativity and to reach your own musicality, giving a chance to find again the lost motivation and enthusiasm for bored and unsatisfied musicians.
