"Burton and Snell have provided an impressive toolkit for developing student creativity and musicianship. Their sequential guide to teaching improvisation will be a welcome addition to any music educator's library." -- Christian Bernhard, Professor of Music Education, The State University of New York at Fredonia "Ready, Set, Improvise! provides easy to follow instructions for engaging students of all ages in creative music-making activities. Teachers who are experienced improvisers as well as those new to the notion of musical improvisation will find something they can implement in their classrooms." -- Colleen Conway, University of Michigan "This is a superb resource for teaching your students the skills and concepts they need to improvise fluently in a variety of tonalities and meters. The meticulously sequenced instruction carries students step by step from the earliest stages of musical understanding all the way to creative self-expression. Burton and Snell have given us a remarkably practical guide that all music teachers can immediately put to good use." -- Daniel Deutsch, Founding Chairperson of the National Association for Music Education's Council for Music Composition "Burton and Snell share common sense approaches for pre-service and in-service music educators who realize the value of improvisation and are searching for practical techniques that maintain musical integrity." -- Richard F. Grunow, Professor Emeritus of Music Education, Eastman School of Music
