Improvisation - Megan Chang

Uploaded On:  Thursday March 7, 2013

Megan Chang, age 11 from Torrance (CA) Yamaha Music Center creates an "instant composition" by choosing from many "motifs" (short musical phrases) submitted by audience members. These motifs were placed in a plastic box and one was randomly picked. Without hearing or seeing it before, Megan immediately created and performed an entire composition based on this motif. Improvisation is one of the cornerstones of the Yamaha Music Education System.--Part of the Junior Original Concert from August 5, 2012.
