Music: Improvisations on Keyboard


I often will sit down at my keyboard and improvise songs. I tend toward minor keys because I enjoy their emotive power. Relative minor often has a lighter, sadder sound than harmonic minor, and it is fun to modulate between the two types of minor keys. I also will modulate to a major key for contrast and to provide a deeper sense of mood changes, as it feels more powerful when the song returns to minor keys. I do not plan these pieces. I just sit down, put my fingers on the keyboard, think about what key to start in, and then just start playing. I let the song take me where it will.  For me, this is a way I can express and process tough emotions in a healthy manner, so it’s therapeutic for me in a way.

So without further ado, here are my most recent improvisations that I recorded on my TASCAM Recorder within the last few months.

  1. I think it’s really neat that you’re able to do improv work. 🙂 I can play music and often can remember tunes from a long time ago and play those… but when it comes to original works, I have a lot of trouble! Even when I try it usually sounds like songs I already know lol
