Sit down at the piano and play whatever you want comes into your head, making up music as you go along. That's free improvisation. This lesson is designed for players with some facility at the piano but with little knowledge of improvisational techniques. For more advanced players, Marilyn draws from her long experience with the music of Cecil Taylor, Anthony Braxton, Gary Peacock and other top improvisers, using tunes by talented colleagues as a launching point for developing ideas beyond the melodies. Whether you are new to this technique or an accomplished improviser, this lesson will bring new joys to your piano playing and help unlock the secrets of creating free music on the piano.
