Improvisation on Enchanted Castle -Norton

When I arrived in the UK I had to change completely my way of teaching piano.

My students basically don’t practice the piano in between the classes, especially teenagers. I don’t assign them “homework” because they barely have the time to relax: English school keeps them really really busy.

But they love music, they love to express themselves through it and eventually they learn how to play by composing their own pieces or improvising, even when they are really young – not repeating the same pieces for months.

I enjoy teaching piano a lot more now and while I help them to discover their creativity I also rediscover mine (which has been forgotten for so looooong after 17years of Conservatoire in Italy).

Here, me and my 14 years old student are improvising on a Christopher Norton piece.
Thank you, music.
