Session 6: The Magic of Improvisation — Free Your Note & Be in the Moment

Improvisation is the courage to move from one note to the next.
— Bobby McFerrin

Neuroscience has found that improvising music in the moment — without trying to read musical notation — brings many neurological benefits.

A study by Charles Limb, MD showed that improvisation deactivates the areas in the brain involved in self-judgment, criticism, and self-monitoring.

Meanwhile, the medial prefrontal cortex activates the parts of the brain involved in meditation, telling your personal story, and experiencing the moment.

You’ll discover how improvisation helps build your creativity. You’ll explore the many ways it’s a daring practice of self-expression — a tool that changes your brain from the default network to the presence or mindfulness network.

Everyone can be inspired by prompts and partners. playing solo or in duets and ensembles. It’s a powerful way to create poetry as you learn simple structures of beauty that sculpt your songwriting freedom.

In this module, you’ll:

  • Learn to play a flute haiku, inspired by Japanese poetry
  • Discover the universal keys to improvisation from one quality note to simple repetition
  • Discover compelling research on the brain benefits of improvisation and playing from your heart
  • Learn how to use play-along tracks and apps for creative prompts and expression
  • Experience tools for online jamming with others

Session 7: Courting the Beloved — A Heartsong Practice

The flute of the Infinite is played without ceasing, and its sound is love.
— Kabir

Beginning with its origins as a “courting flute” in the Native American tradition, the flute plays the heart of love and longing.

You’ll move through the flute’s connection to love throughout many different traditions and times. You’ll discover how, in Hindu tradition, there’s a shabda, a sonic current of love that encircles the universe forever.

In the Zen temples of Japan, shakuhachi flute players wore barrels over their heads to avoid the ego of being performers, and to allow their playing to be an offering to Buddha.

What music did Krisha play that drew the gopis to follow? What song did Kokopelli play that brought rain to the thirsty earth? What response do you hear when you play your flute as a question to the Divine?

This session will feature Guillermo Martinez demonstrating his heartsong practice — and sharing tools of playing the voice of creation using drum, rattle, and flute.

In this final module, you’ll:

  • Experience a flute meditation as you listen to the sacred flute played by Sri Chimnoy, a master guru in the Hindu tradition, and by Nawang Khechog, a celebrated Tibetan flute player and composer
  • Discover 3 parameters for finding your own heartsong — and expressing it on the flute
  • Be inspired by Guillermo’s teachings on reaching inward to create outward music
  • Explore sound and silence in the practice of connecting with the divine current of sound
