Here's some tips you can get from the video. - Start with a chord eg Eb. - Play up the Eb arpeggio, starting with larger intervals down bottom (eg half-octaves) and narrowing up top (eg play some G, Bb). - Once you get half-way up, start playing on the right hand - just 1 melody line - Make sure the right-hand notes clash and resolve for interest eg play some C to Bb. D up to Eb. - Over time, make right-hand notes form a kind of gay melody - Change the arpeggio eg Cmin - Repeat/Rinse
I wouldn't say improvising is pure imagination. It's skill & experience about what works (how & why) and then a dollop of imagination on top. It also requires a kind of confidence - partly to ignore the early criticism you'll receive but also just to "let it out". You can't teach the imagination part, so much, but I think you can teach the rest. Analyzing music can be important, depending on the style - eg for Bebop you can't just start "playing from the mind", without knowing about the chords

CoponeZR..you are VERY wrong about that! Please don't mislead people desiring this wonderful ability into not ever pursuing that! I have been teaching improv for over 40 years to people not having the inborn talent , to great success. I use methods I examined in Europe, to teach this
There is no way we can teach people improvising.. Its straight from the mind. And its nothing to do with analyzing alot of music etc, its just pure imagination. And of couse, you have to be able to play the piano.
so bright
Learning and analyzing good music. A lot.
