dc.description.abstractAbstract This document provides a set of progressive games and accompanying rehearsal strategies for use in a free improvisation ensemble setting. The games synthesize the basic tenets of effective free improvisation as noted by veteran improvisers. Additionally, the games have been created empirically in an egalitarian free improvisation environment, are designed to progressively expose students to the disposition of free improvisation, and are meant to serve as a viable solution to fill the need for improvisation in university music programs. This document will also outline the curriculum used in the Mysterium Free Improvisation Ensemble that I created and direct at Texas Tech University, the ensemble’s semester projects and two improvisatory pieces I created for the ensemble.
