Piano Improvising Tip
It’s a miracle . That’s what piano playing is.
When truly improvising, the music that comes out reflects the essence of each person.
The piano is a vehicle for revealing ourselves to ourselves.
You can’t force it.
The piano is a vehicle for self-realization.
When you start not knowing where the music that is emanating from you is coming from, then you have arrived.
In the beginning, keep your forays into improvisation upon melodies “close to the vest”… simple / just a few notes away from the original song.
It’s not about playing jazz – – it’s about playing you!
Mistakes are often your best source for new ideas.
You can’t get the zone, the zone finds you….
Piano playing is about being yourself, enjoying what you are doing…it’s not about being perfect.
Success is measured by how much enjoyment and pleasure you derive and share with others.
