WHY I WROTE THIS METHOD With Love and Patience
I designed this method of piano technique for those who wish to learn to play the piano without missing out on the essence of piano technique. These exercises touch the very heart of piano technique in depth.
In my many years of teaching, I have yet to come across any published method in the form of a book or even course that brings together finger technique and arm technique, both essential in piano playing.
I felt it my mission to put together a complete method of piano technique available to both beginner and advanced piano players.
YES, YOUR SUPER FINGERS! In Every Step You'll Get Closer
For over seven years, I studied the piano with Professor Avi Schönfeld, a disciple of Arthur Rubinstein, Yvonne Lefébure, Ilona Vincze-Krausz, Vlado Perlemuter, and Nadia Boulanger.
His system of teaching piano technique appears to me unsurpassed. In Super Fingers, I teach my recollection of what I have learned from him and my vision of teaching piano technique.
My years of experience teaching young beginners and advanced players helped me to develop this step-by-step method.
For clarity and from a pedagogical perspective, I teach the essence of where to start improving your piano playing in this first book.
3 THINGS TO GET RIGHT to Make the difference
Setting Goals will boost your desire to learn. If you want to play the piano well, you must have some target in mind where you want to go. You are here means you have a goal, and being part of Piano Fantasy community will help you become more precise on your targets.
The right method will help you reach your goals faster and more effectively. Without a method, you’ll get lost and distracted on the way and most likely lose track of your goal. In this book and the course, I’ll be your mentor, guiding you through the forest of information scattered on the internet.
Schedule your practice will ensure you spend enough time making progress at the piano. It won’t come as a surprise that playing the piano requires practice. What helps is to remind yourself of your goals and to be part of a community with people who have similar goals.
Technique serves music it brings control over the keyboard
The technique goes hand in hand with musicianship. Because you can only change what you sound like by changing your piano technique. Imagine your sound and music expression, then find the strategy. Super Fingers is a method that goes deep into piano strategy.
Let’s face it; you can only become a good pianist if you nail your piano technique first. And now that we know we must look piano technique in the face, we’d better do this with a good strategy and methodology at hand.
It feels great to feel your finger power grow each day. Secondly, well-developed fingers and arm technique speed up your learning of any new piece of music you decide to take on.
