Talk on Improvisation

Improvisation: Bringing Back the Lost Art of Improvisation

 

Part I

Part II

 

Invited speaker for the New England Piano Teachers Association. Sarah discusses the importance of restoring the art of improvisation lost in the 20th century. Connecting to a spirit of playfulness, inner child, and unconditional acceptance are ways in which one can overcome the initial fear of improvising.  In the second half, she invites volunteers to try improvising in duets with restricted notes as well as improvising in free style using imagery.
