The Complete Pianist
with Margaret Fingerhut
Friday 23 March – Sunday 25 March 2018
Course No. 3273
Solo Study Course
This course offers the opportunity to explore the many different aspects of interpretation and pianism that go towards making the complete pianist. There will be guidance on matters such as tone production, touch, articulation and phrasing, as well as tips on improving velocity, finger independence and accuracy. The fundamental issue of pedalling, “the soul of the piano” will also be an important part of the course, too.
Bring 2 pieces or movements to work on in this relaxed and informal setting.
