Are you a budding Yehudi Menuhin or Rubenstein?
Whatever your level of playing I feel sure we can build new vivacity and finger strength: better control, faster passages, a truer legato, a brighter sound, more depth of volume, emotion and ever deeper perception, reignite your enthusiasm, explore new composers, improvise freely, discover jazz chords, break free from previous constraints, errors and stagnation! Begin your new journey into bolder, more brilliant pianism today :)
To the right here watch Kent pianist Louise Woodcock play Bach's first Prelude from the Well Tempered Klavier. How we must accent dramatic highlights within Bach's incessant semiquavers! What tempo should we take? Choose a speed you can maintain which you feel will help the audience relax into your performance and interpretation - aim to enchant, envigorate, energise, grip!! Bring out highlights with dynamic variation - consider rubato if appropriate - practice until you have technical assurance and mastery - a simple piece to begin, then add intensity! First notes and rhythms, practice, practice; yet there is more to perfect interpretation: what an endless task is piano learning! Always more to master, more to appreciate, more to unfold! Take your own playing to new heights of endeavour today! Release your budding inner virtuoso!! :D
FREE PIANO PLAYING TIPS for everyone:
Who is your favourite composer? There is such a wide range of piano music to play from the last 500 years plus modern contemporary, jazz, pop, boogie & blues, and even orchestral themes - you'll never be bored again! Many adult pupils find half an hour practice after work relaxes & enhances their mood, ready to shrug off the cares of the day, pop on the slippers & enjoy the evening! I have taken adults from complete scratch to playing fave tunes both hands in one to three years, depending on time the player has available. I also teach adults refresher courses - ideal if you previously reached a high standard but now struggle to find relevant material to play. Lots of superb testimonials!
