Whitton, Jeffrey: The Art of Practising the Piano


Ref: B806 ISBN: 9780852498064 ISMN: 9790220218392 Categories: , , By:

The book is intended for piano students who have reached Grade V and then need help with the organisation of their practice rather than simply repetitive playing of scales and pieces. Imaginatively presented, the author writes of physical and psychological preparation; practice by analysis; the development of a secure memory; how to approach sight-reading; practising scales, exercises and pieces by identifying problem areas; and preparation for performance. Whatever techniques you are taught to use, this book is an immensely useful aid to making practice pleasurable rather than dull, never mindless and always a stimulating voyage of discovery.
