Creating Forest's Edge: A Piano Improvisation
















There's nothing I like more than improvising piano music to nature's beauty. Creating Forest's Edge took me about 5-10 minutes. It's a slow piano improvisation in the Key of B Major that uses just 4 chords in open position. This is actually exercise 69 from my workbook "New Age Piano Made Easy."

The exercise illustrates the use of a chord chart. Chord symbols like B Major 7 and C# minor 7 are spelled out on top every 2-bars. This allows the improviser to create his or her own unique melodies and sound. What you hear below is my rendition of this exercise!
