I've been classically trained since I was eight. Recently, I've been interested in playing music by ear and improvisation. Does this tend to be more difficult for those who were classically trained?

You have to know the harmony and choral technique connection of chords and rules of connection very well and their names, scales ( all degrees ) And also you have to train your ears i suggest you to ear master program for train your ears.
Sorry for my English, I know it sucks, but I'm trying to improve.

+1. Ear master is very good, but it will quickly make you insane. Enjoy!

Though I would add that some of its program aren't the greatest. Rhythmic imitation isn't up to much.
