This course is much more than just an ebook. You also get access to
tutorial videos illustrating each concept and access to my exclusive
Student Forum to ask questions and post videos. Yes, with this course,
you will receive feedback from an experienced piano teacher - me. You
can even record your assigned activities and I’ll respond with tips

You’ll receive seven thorough lessons - plus a great bonus lesson,
each with text, rich media, and recommended activities to do on your
own. Although the lessons and examples use keyboard, the concepts
presented here can be transferred to many other instruments, such as
the harp, guitar, etc.

Did you ever listen to a pianist or other musician playing a song
that you knew but, somehow, it sounded very different and fresh. You
can play tunes in many different ways by improvising. You can learn to
improvise on an existing tune or from ground zero and make up
everything as you play.

Being able to Improvise on the piano or another musical instrument is
one of the most exciting things in music because youre shaping and
choreographing your own musical work and taking the listener on an
emotional journey. Like any story (novel, play, movie, etc.), the
listener experiences your thoughts and feelings through your music and
- if done well - is enriched by the experience.

I’m Terry Smith. As a private piano and voice teacher, I frequently
teach improvisation to my students. It’s unfortunate that many
teachers do not teach this way as it helps to make independent
musicians. I feel so strongly about the importance of improvisation,
that I’m now offering this expertise in a online package.
