This research investigates the relation of social practices and behavior of the musician or singer with the quality of his improvisation in the field of music. Using analytic method and field study, it explores the views of two groups of interviewees in the form of two separate statistical communities. The first sample consists of outstanding teachers of music in sixties and nineties which deals with the behavior of the musician from his own perspective by using the results of questionnaire (1). The second sample consists of students in the music school and free classes of music which studies the social practices and behavior of musicians from the perspective of students by using questionnaire (2). This study aims to validate the hypothesis that improvisation is an intrinsic art and is highly dependent on personal characteristics of the musician and singer. The analysis and comparison of the answers of the two groups indicates that social practices, the behavior of improviser, the manner of speaking and social assimilation of the improviser all have significant relationship with the quality of the musician or singer improvisation. Moreover, the analysis of findings show that there is a significant difference between personal characteristics of the improvisers and accompanists and, consequently, besides instructing general skills of music, the students should be classed into two groups of soloists and accompanists based on their personal features and intrinsic abilities, and each group should follow a special educational program. The main aim is to recognize the relation of social behavior of the improviser with the ability of real-time creation of music and using it in the process of scientific instruction of music students.
