I was trained as a classical pianist. With classical music you have notes on the page and all of those notes must be played. While there is creative and individual nuances involved, there’s no room for error. No room for improv. So 7 years ago, when I first got into musical improv at Second City and was told to sit at the piano and make something up, I was totally out of my element.
Through guidance and practice, I discovered how freeing and fun improvising music is!
