Have you ever heard someone play the same piece that you also play but for some reason, it sounds so much better than your own and yet it's the same song ? The melody is the same yet it has that little something extra that gives it an edge. The chords are are similar and yet, it has something extra that makes it refreshingly different yet somehow familiar to the ears. What about those notes in between all the other notes as well. They were not there in the original song but this player seems to make the original piece sound better by adding something extra. That something extra is called Improvisation. It can be learnt and we teach it. Like other lessons, its once a week. Like the Jazz course, you need to know how to play before you improvise so some music background is essential.
