CRAFT OF PIANO METHOD
Lower group of links: new solutions to age-old problems in piano technique
I grew up with woefully little knowledge about piano technique. This was a hidden blessing – as a technique tabula rasa I no bad habits to get rid of! Wanting to offer my students better than what I got, in my 20’s and 30’s I sought, and to my good fortune, found teachers of exceptional knowledge and ability. I tried to form their practice into something useful for pianists today – Craft of Piano Method. I've synthesized several previous approaches with new knowledge from neuroscience and kinesiology to create an system that is effective and easy to apply.
