What is improvisation? How is it done?

Taksim Nedir? Taksim; sözlükte bölmek, parçalamak gibi anlamları ifade ederken, musiki terimi olarak, bir makam üzere karar kılmak (bitirmek) şartıyla musiki nota seyir kurallarına uyarak makam veya makamların özelliklerini ana hatlarıyla da olsa göstermek kaydıyla, tamamen sanatçının kendi melodik dünyasını ve kabiliyetini sergilediği anlık ve içinden geldiği gibi, yani bir başka deyişle doğaçlama olarak icra ettiği saz musikisi (enstrümantal) çeşididir.
