Piano Mastery Talks - Reading Together - Paderewski


"Paderewski lays great stress on legato playing, and desires everything to be studied slowly, with deep touch and with full, clear tone."
(page 14, Kindle Edition)

"Paderewski advises studying scales and arpeggios with accents, for instance, accenting every third note, thus enabling each finger in turn to make the accent impulse: this will secure evenness of touch."
(page 14, Kindle Edition)

"He believes in employing a fingering which is most comfortable to the hand, as well as one which, in the long run, will render the passage most effective."
(page 17, Kindle Edition)

Piano Mastery Talks - Reading Together


Welcome to the newest Reading Together series. I'll be posting a summary about our reading each week on Tuesdays. Come join us!

We'll be reading Piano Mastery Talks with Master Pianists and Teachers by Harriette Brower. This book is available from Amazon.

We'll be reading one chapter per week.
I'll post about the first installment on Tuesday, January 20. That means you have one week to get a copy of the book and to read the first chapter.

The great thing about this program is that it allows us to read works together that can help us in our professional development as well as providing a level of accountability and the added interest of comparing notes as we read together.
