ok so my music teacher who is an extremely good organ musician told me that to improve my improvisation i must train my ear by figuiring out songs by ear....what do you think of this?
I agree. Not necessarily by figuring out songs only though, but just any sort of ear training.
Improvisation is all about taking what you hear in your head and expressing that through your instrument, which a good ear will enable you to more effectively do.
