Improvisation is a multifaceted but often overlooked area of music. In this talk Professor Raymond MacDonald of the University of Edinburgh demonstrates that despite what we may think, we are all musical.
Professor MacDonald is the head of the School of Music at Edinburgh University. Improvisation and the psychology of music in particular music, health & wellbeing are his main interests within the field. He is a jazz saxophonist & improviser and likes to investigate the boundaries and ambiguities of conventional "classical playing".
