Please tell me what you think!
Since I am rather new to improvising, suggestions would be really helpful. Smiley

There are some nice moments in this. However, had you not mentioned that it is based on Fantasie Impromptu I doubt I would have known. I am not particularly good at improvising on other people’s material so I hesitate to comment on that aspect. The only thing I can suggest is that with any music, including improvisation, it is often a good idea to include a contrasting section for the sake of maintaining interest. While not impossible, it has always seemed a lot harder to me to keep a sense of balance with just one idea.
