Describe clearly the content of this workshop:

I will give tips for improvisation especially for classical pianists who are always used to play with notes. We play together with special exercises and tasks, I explain by practice and short harmonic theory.

In addition I offer to teach the pianists in their classical literature, give technical and musical tips, new ideas for the understanding of their music and the way of practicing. We would do this in the group so the others could learn by listening. It depends how big the group is how long each person get a personal teaching, 

We will have time for individual teaching and time for themes about improvisation, playing the songs in the church and harmonic theory. 

Improvisation has a great influence on the playing of classical music, it relaxes the playing, supports the expression, the rhythm, the feeling become more freedom.
