I have been playing the piano for 2 years now and I can play some of my favorite pieces through sheet music and a lot of time. I have also been singing in a band for quite some years and want to incorporate the piano into some songs.
What could be a good practice routine for practicing piano improvisation/jamming? We're in a band with a guitarist/bass player/drummer and myself as a singer.
I can play and identify major/minor scales, but not instantly. I practice for 2 hours a day.
I was thinking about 20 minutes of practicing scales, 20 minutes of practicing chords and chord progressions and then spend the remaining time playing along with random snippets of music. Would this be the most effective way of increasing this skill?
Also if it's of any help I'm a quite an experienced guitar and bass player myself and have been writing songs and producing music for a couple of years now so I have a good idea of how I need to compliment other instruments and take the lead myself.
