The Courage to Create

There's a moment with new students that I love. When students explore improvisation for the first time. 

Especially when they have taken lessons before, and never experienced it.

At first, there's often some hesitation. After all, students are used to "right" and "wrong" in school. Not, "Create something, and there are no wrong choices."

But once they begin, they see that they can make something of their own. Excitement builds. And before you know it, it becomes something they look forward to every lesson.

It takes some courage to start creating. But once you start, creating becomes a joy you can't imagine life without.
