Piano Improvisation

Making music began with improvisation. Improvisation was the genesis of the music they refined into written compositions. Twentieth-century many pianists who pursue professional goals did not improvise. What they overlooked was that improvisation stimulates creativity, imagination, expressive exploration, qualities that nourish all performance. This course will help you learn to improvise by taking you through many of the points.  It is designed for people who already have musical training, this process can go much faster.
