Welcome to Improv Planet!

Why call it Improv Planet?  Because finding a place to learn historic keyboard improvisation is like locating a tiny isolated planet somewhere in the galaxy.  

John Mortensen is a leader in the international revival of classical piano improvisation. Appearing frequently as concert artist, masterclass teacher, and academic conference speaker in America and Europe, he is noted for his ability to improvise entire concerts in historical styles, including complex compositions such as Baroque fugues. His book on classical improvisation is forthcoming with Oxford University Press.

He is a university music professor, a Steinway Artist, and is sponsored by the US State Department's Fulbright Specialists program as an artistic ambassador on behalf of the American people.

FOR NEW MEMBERS:  Patreon is set up like a blog; it scrolls.  The newest content is at the top by default.  Under Posts you can change the default so that the oldest posts come first as that would be a more logical way to work through the material.
Tiers
One.
$1 or more per month

This tier includes feed, the Amateur Improv Tutorial Vid (with accompanying study materials), the Improv Performance Vid, and access to the exclusive Improv Planet discussion forum.  The Amateur Improv Tutorial Vid is now bi-monthly since the first patron goal has been met.   Tier One is for amateur players who want to check out entry-level improvisation skills.

Five.
$5 or more per month

Tier Five (or V, I guess) is as high as we go.  I promised this would be cheap.  V includes Feed, twice-monthly Amateur and Pro Tutorial Vids (with accompanying study materials), Performance Vid, the How-I-Did-It Breakdown, and access to the exclusive Improv Planet discussion forum.  I have cool stuff in mind for later!

At 200 patrons, I will start a monthly AMA (Ask Me Anything) video.
