So we started very simply. First was imitation, next was to play something completely opposite, and lastly we melded those ideas of imitation and opposites. We did a few other things, too... like picking only two notes, and trying to improvise with only those pitches. We also did a picture thing: drawing symbols on a page and using those drawings to interpret something on the instrument, and vice versa.
It was really fun to actually play with someone else.
And last night I went a little bit overboard purchasing improv books. *Cough.* I figure it's cheaper than enrolling in a class.
