|Strategies for Musical Mastery are my way of thanking you for visiting my site. The suggestions and explanations here are conclusions drawn from nearly 30 years of teaching piano and music enrichment to students from all over the world. In this series of articles you'll find FAQ's about music study for parents, teachers and students, and other insights into the learning process. Individual questions of general interest may also be answered in this spot. If you have a question, please e-mail me and I will answer in this column. In the future there may be a bulletin-board feature for you to help each other.|
|As the site expands, other topics may include How To Start Improvising, How the Brain Works In Practice (or Does Playing it 100 Times Really Help?), The Value of Listening, What Constitutes Progress Anyway?, Motivation Ideas, Goal-Setting Strategies, Exciting Repertoire, Competition and Contest Preparation, and more. Your input is always welcome.|
The music in the background is repertoire chosen from my piano method, Making Music My Own, published by Heritage Music Press, subsidiary of the Lorenz Corp. in Dayton OH, and is available through your local music dealer.
