When I reviewed the answers from my subscribers about what is their goal in organ playing, I was surprised how many people were interested in learning to improvise. In particularly, the style of J.S.Bach is so fascinating to many people that majority of organists want to learn to improvise using similar techniques that the great master used in his compositions.
Actually, this is of course easy to understand because improvisation develops your creativity, helps you to become a complete musician, you can create music like composers do, and you can enhance your worship playing by introducing your improvisations to your congregation.
Therefore, I decided to create a free 9 day Keyboard Prelude Improvisation Mini Course on improvising keyboard preludes in the style of Bach.
You can sign up for this fantastic free course here (you will only need to enter your name and email address).
If you sign up for this mini course, in the next 9 days, I will teach you specific techniques that I use to improvise keyboard preludes in his style.
Each day you will receive a short exercise which will empower you to be able to create a prelude on the spot after just 9 days.
Even though you might have never tried your hand at improvisation, this course will be easy and playable even for the beginner and I promise to you that these exercises will be fun, short, and to the point.
I hope you will join me in this fascinating journey into the world of improvisation. If you are wondering what benefits can improvisation provide for you, here is an article I wrote some time ago about it which you may find useful to read.
