Allow the Music to Flow

Many people think improvisation is about making something up. True, improvisation is about spontaneous invention but making something up implies that you have to think about what you want to create.

A far better approach is to let the music come out of you unfettered WITHOUT THINKING ABOUT IT. A radically different approach than trying to come up with something. This way of playing is accomplished when you sit in front of your piano without any expectation of what is to come. You are not trying to control or think something up. Instead, you are allowing the music to flow through you and transform you at the same time.
