Improvise at the piano without reading music?
It’s not difficult if someone shows you how. Take a look at the 
Classical-type Improv  page.
My goal is to try to show you easy ways to improvise without you having to study or practice. If you play currently or used to play then you already have dexterity under your fingertips that you can use to explore and get creative at the piano. I would like to show you some easy pathways and concepts so you can sit down anytime and spontaneously make up music at the piano, without having to work or study to make it happen.
