comment How to play a song without making mistakes?
"these skills actually develop while you sleep" Can you give a reference to this? I've found this to be pretty true based on my personal experience but I'd like to know if there is any scientific basis to it.

comment How to learn piano improvisation
What I meant is that this gives me a ready recipe. I want to get knowledge and skills which will allow me to create such recipes. It's hard for me to believe that there are no universal skills and knowledge one should possess to be able to improvise better, regardless of the style one wants to improvise in, but if I am wrong, please correct me.

Thanks, but I don't want a 'quick cheat' - I want to know what I should learn, it might be a long learning period, to start getting better at it.

haha, good one :). I think these arguments really strike my heart so I suppose I must be a good laziness rationalizer too ;).

What you say reminds me of this book - pianopractice.org Nevertheless I suppose this also works, and I love not wasting time on mindless practice, but I feel like my fingers could use some "straining" and training and I thought Hanon would be a fine choice.

It's a good plan. I meant to take one or two sessions with a teacher just to learn a bit about the proper techniques, but I never really had time/dedication to carry on with this. I will have to reconsider this someday though.
