Any student of the piano can benefit from a holistic approach, in which coordinated movements of the pianist's body provide the foundation for reaching the heights of musical creativity and expression.
Lack of strength, flexibility, and grace slow a student's progress and may permanently frustrate interpretive goals. But with the careful and thorough development of physical skills, the pianists will have at his or her command the efficiency, power, and agility necessary to communicate the deepest meaning of the music. Just as grammar is an unconscious foundation of verbal expression, so musical technique is the necessary underpinning of creative expression.
Seymour Fink has drawn on many years of concert performance and teaching to distill this comprehensive program for the piano student. If the student follows the program systematically, a firm, supple technique results, and he or she will avoid bad habits and potential injury. Musical examples from the traditional repertoire complement the practice exercises, clearly demonstrating the value of the study. Numerous illustrations accompany the text, making the book easy to use, even at the keyboard.
