Creative Ability Development (CAD) is a method which uses musical improvisation as a tool to develop the creative side of the brain. It’s pedagogical purpose is to teach unique self expression or musicality. It’s philosophical purpose is to develop the ethical character of artistry in every student, which is the search for, and expression of, truth and beauty. CAD teaches students how to create together and share ideas, and inspires in each student a non-competitive internal drive for excellence.
The method is based on research, which explains how the process of creativity works in the brain to solve problems. Using music as a language and improvisation as a tool, the method of CAD replicates this creative process through group games and solo exercises. Through disciplined practice of the CAD method, all students can develop their innate creative ability to a very high level.
