On-line Survey into Musicians’ Views on Improvisation

Keith Phillips is a PhD candidate at the Royal Northern College of Music (RNCM) and has contacted us seeking help with his research involving musicians’ views on improvisation and how they relate to views about the mind and body.  It’s aimed at improvising musicians, music students and music educators.  If you are not one of these, but know someone who is, please email him/her the details of this survey and ask them to get involved.

The online survey – at https://mmu.onlinesurveys.ac.uk/improvisation-and-mindbody-questionnaire-cuk - takes only 10-15 minutes.  The closing date is 14 October 2018. Respondents can request a copy of the analysed results (due Spring 2019) by contacting keith.phillips@student.rncm.ac.uk , after you completed the online survey. 

Keith’s research is into the role of auditory imagery in improvisation. He cannot reveal too much in case of prejudicing the survey but says, “The broad objective is to reconcile a cognitive-scientific perspective on improvising with improvising pedagogy and practice.”
