Though we often think of it as something extraordinary, an ability that comes later if at all, improvisation is the natural starting place. When a beginner grabs hold of a few notes and simply begins playing with them (in every sense of the word), he develops physical skill, practices rhythmic continuity, trains his ear, and learns to create – all at the same time.
