Performance and Improvisation (PI) Ensembles provide an opportunity for students to enrich their existing musical vocabularies and skills through practical exploration of many different world musics and improvisation across a range of genres and styles. 

Emphasis is placed on transcription and creating a means of adaptation to the student’s primary (western) instrument.  Ensemble instruction is divided into two modules per semester, each focusing on the musical styles of a particular region (Sub-Saharan Africa, South America/Central America/the Caribbean, Northern Africa/the Middle East, Asia). 

PI ensembles will participate in intensive residencies and collaborative performances with visiting artists.
