Beginner course in piano technique

Do you want to increase the speed and strength of your piano playing or learn the right piano techniques for beginners? Then this course based on the Russian piano technique traditional method  is something for you!

What is piano technique?

Scales and other technical exercises on the piano are considered boring, but many piano students want to be able to improve their technique by achieving maximum speed and strength. Even for beginner students regardless of age, it is important to work on the hands position as well as stable and flexible finger technique in order to later be able to continue with new skills.

The Russian classical tradition

The course in piano technique is based on the well-known Russian pianist and pedagog Evgenij Lieberman's piano method, which has been used for several decades by Russian piano students and teachers at all levels in the work with piano technique. Lieberman's piano method was a big part of my own piano studies in Russia.

This method is a mixture of different educational ideas of such prominent piano educators as, for example, Carl Czerny and Charles-Louis Hanon. According to the method, piano technique, i.e. speed and strength, is seen mainly as the means of the pianist's artistic expression. The Russian piano school focuses on developing the pianist's musicality in balance with piano technique to become a skilled musician rather than a virtuoso pianist. During the course, I teach according to the Russian piano school method to help my students develop different playing techniques and thus enrich their piano playing.

The basic course in piano technology is for those who want to learn playing piano without physical obstacles and create a solid foundation for continued learning. There is also an opportunity to take an advanced course for those who have experienced certain technical difficulties in playing and want to work with your piano technique based on your individual needs.
