I recently came across a video of a pianist who was improvising on the Oprah Winfrey show. I think you should take a look at the video.
What was interesting about this video was Oprah's comment - "Improvisation is a gift."
I don't know what you think about this comment, but I certainly do not agree with it. I have realized, through my own piano playing and teaching, that you can cultivate and develop improvisational skills.
In fact, I receive emails from many of you telling me how much your improvisational techniques have improved after taking our piano courses.
Head over to watch this video now.
You will see that she improvised beautifully. It certainly took her many years to develop the styles and techniques that allow her to play so effortlessly. But it was a skill she developed through practice and not a gift she was born with.
The fact is that you too can become a great improviser with the right learning tools and practice.
If you dream of improvising and playing beautifully on the piano, our piano courses, such as the award-winning “Definitive Piano Improvisation,” “Mastering the Art of Piano Accompaniment” and “Sweet Sounds of Jazz Improvisation,” will take your playing to the next level.
Remember, you must also practice. Applying the knowledge you acquire from the course is the secret to mastering your new-found skills.
