Making music should be a rewarding, inspiring and enjoyable experience. And playing the piano should be as natural as breathing. As a teacher, it is my job to guide students to the point where they understand and love the music they play. To do this, they must learn to play without strain or anxiety. This can be accomplished through a combination of clear thinking, relaxed and effective movement, and efficient, creative practicing.
We learn more when we practice than we learn in the lesson itself. Learning takes place through understanding. Peter seeks to help his students understand the physical and psychological issues involved in making music at the piano. With this approach, he encourages them to gain the freedom they need to express themselves through music.
