Video Transcription

Hi, this is Robert Estrin. Welcome to the Today I'm going to play a classical improvisation for you. That's the whole deal.

I hope you enjoyed that. Just nice themes, a little bit dark today. That might be because when I first tried to set up the video everything was dark, literally dark the image and it took so many settings it was a little bit frustrating, so maybe that was coming out in my music. It's amazing how the moods effect everything that happens in your life effects your music doesn't it? I hope you enjoyed the beauty of the sound, this wonderful instrument.

Once again, this is Robert Estrin here at You're on my piano store.

Does your mood effect the music or does the music effect your mood?

Half way through, I forgot it was an improvisation! I have similar experience with classical improv on cello.

Where do you suggest people develop a vocabulary for improvisation like this? My students often want to be able to play this way (on cello) and I always wonder myself where most of my influence and vocabulary came from! Any tips?
