When it comes to learning a certain piano technique, "HOW it works" only becomes relevant when we have answered two crucial questions: "WHY is it needed?" "What expressive effect does it help us to create?" This place of awareness is where real technical development begins! 😎

Learn more by watching my new VIDEO reply dedicated to the 'ins and outs' of the 'clawing' technique - as part of the October edition of our Q&A project at PianoCareerAcademy.com! 🎹🎢😁

Hi guys! The first VIDEO reply to our members' October questions (as part of the 39th edition of our "Questions & Answers" project) is now LIVE on PianoCareerAcademy.com! 🎹🎢😁

Why do impressionist pieces seem so problematic sometimes? πŸ˜“ It's because we approach them with a classical (or romantic) technical/expressive 'toolkit'. This simply doesn't work! Sound colors; key attack; dynamics; pedaling... everything is different in this magical world called Musical Impressionism 😜. Learn how to 'crack the code' and create subtle impressionist musical images by watching today's video! 😊😎

Happy Monday everyone! β€οΈπŸ˜‰ The quote below doesn't just refer to the TEMPO of your practice. 😊 First and foremost, it's about PATIENCE: yes, a professional progressive approach may seem slow at first... but it will save you years of frustration in the long run! 😎
Be patient and persistent - no art can resist this magic 'conquest formula'! 🎢🎹

Happy Monday everyone! πŸ˜€ Recommended tutorial of the week on PianoCareerAcademy.com: a short yet very insightful excerpt from a recent interview with the great Russian pianist Vladimir Ashkenazy (with my English subtitles!).

In this fragment he talks about THE most important aspect of our art: understanding and conveying the MESSAGE encoded in a piece! 😎

The interviewer is prof. Valery Pyasetsky of the Moscow Conservatory (a student of the legendary Anna Artobolevskaia).
