Piano Improvisation Lessons



I would like to offer you the opportunity to essentially learn a new language - MUSIC, and specifically, how to express yourself musically at the piano, whether you have a real acoustic piano or just a keyboard.

I began exploring piano around middle school, with the help of some keyboard knowledge from school percussion (xylophone, marimba, etc, where I learned to read music). I found the possiblities fascinating on piano, with the various chords and chord progressions that could be made.

The piano is capable of evoking profound beauty of various moods and emotions - JOY, or SORROW, or DRAMA, or PEACE, and so on... Yes, if you are a complete beginner it could take some time to get the music flowing on the piano, also depending on how creative you are, but with my "CRM" Method, that is, Chord-Rhythm-Melody, I break down improvising on the piano into just those 3 components that you can practice individually and then learn to put together to begin to express yourself - drawing from your growing palette/arsenal of chords and rhythms, and then learning to incorporate melody using the notes of the scale of the key you are in, giving yourself a chance to explore melodic improvisation, with room for mistakes!

If you are interested or have more questions, please give me, Greg Wilson, a call or a text or send me an email:
