Part 2 – Mastering Piano Technique
Technique is essential for realising our musical intentions at the piano. Every dynamic nuance must be produced by a technical means, in other words, a physical means. Practising the Piano Part 1 dealt with practice methodology and getting the most out of your practice time. Part 2 focusses on the complex area of piano technique and is divided into three volumes:
- Volume 1 provides an understanding of technique through the history, schools and traditions, showing you how to produce the sounds you desire from the piano while keeping physically loose, free and healthy. More info >>
- Volume 2 deals with the various components of piano technique one by one. It examines the role of the hand and the fingers, the importance of finger independence, the wrist, arm and forearm. It will then show how to coordinate all of this to make your playing easier, more efficient and skilful. More info >>
- Volume 3 is a manual of technical exercises based on the material from Volume 2, covering exercise regimens, warm-ups, finger exercises, chord playing, octaves, double notes and repeated notes and trills. With plenty of video demonstrations and precise instructions with exercises written out in manuscript you will know exactly which exercises to practise and how they should be done for maximum effect.
