I study with a pianist who plays for Seymour Bernstein before giving his own concerts. The book is full of "piano education.

The author portrays himself as an emotionally attuned mentor to his students similar to the analyst sitting slightly out of the line of vision of the student at the keyboard (my image from the reading) and guiding their discovery of inner musical potential. I study with a pianist who plays for Seymour Bernstein before giving his own concerts. Seynour himself studied with a great artist (who wrote the forward).

The author, Seymour Bernstein, is a noted teacher, pianist, composer, and writer. The second part of the book addresses the specifics of piano practice. I learned a great deal from this book about the love of music and about piano practice. Bernstein proceeds from broad considerations, such as improving one's concentration during practice time, to specific detailed instruction on matters such as body and hand position, rhythm and volume, securing the independence of the hands and fingers, voicing chords, pedaling, and much more. Bernstein recommends starting by struggling to read the piece through to get a sense of its musical message and its demands. I have been playing the piano for most of my adult life but only returned with some trepidation to take lessons about four years ago. This book needs to be read in the way Self-Discovery And The Piano. If it is a piece that the student falls in love with, he or she is ready to begin the hard, detailed work required to learn the music.

This book was copyrighted in 1981 which may explain the somewhat dated 'NY-psychoanalytic' outlook that reminded me of my clinical training books. The author portrays himself as an emotionally attuned mentor to his students similar to the analyst sitting slightly out of the line of vision of the student at the keyboard (my image from the reading) and guiding their discovery of inner musical potential. I actually think this is an apt metaphor for the special relationship that can exist between a music student and teacher; it is only the somewhat self-admiring quality of his narrative that was slightly off-putting to me. On the other hand, a sensitive and effective teacher is entitled to offer himself as an example. The author is clear that problems in progressing musically are mainly due to failure to practice in an effective manner. However, he willing to venture into interpretation of covertly destructive attitudes of parents or teachers. For example, the author offers as a possible, although infrequent, cause of a student's failure to progress, a subconscious envy, subliminally communicated to a talented student, from a teacher who had him(her)self failed to become a concert pianist and must settle for a career in teaching. While this is possible, it must be extremely unlikely. That being said, the author is clear that responsibility to solve any blocks to musical expression rests with the student. The remainder of his examples are useful or at least merit consideration. He emphasizes the necessity for learning to sight-read, memorization and discusses the problem of performance anxiety. A very intriguing suggestion is his advocacy of group classes as well as individual lessons in order to give the student experience of receiving and giving feedback with peers as well as practice in performance in front of a supportive audience. I would recommend that this book be read in conjunction with Gerald Klickstein's "The Musician's Way" which is more contemporary, offers concrete guidelines for skill development in a number of areas, supported by recent research on memory and reading skills, and is appropriately sensitive to psychological issues.

Because of this book my life took an amazing turn. Seymour has been coaching me as a pianist since 1990! His writing is brilliant. The man is a NATIONAL GEM! Ethan Hawke has produced a documentary about Seymour the past two three years. IF you are a pianist and in need of wisdom your present piano teacher is not capable of sharing READ THIS BOOK. It is a BIBLE.

I really like this book. In a short time it has really helped me. As someone who plays several instruments, I quickly realized that much of the material in this book is equally helpful to those who play instruments other than piano.

I study with a pianist who plays for Seymour Bernstein before giving his own concerts. The book is full of "piano education." Seynour himself studied with a great artist (who wrote the forward). He writes about his own students at NYU, very instructive.

Finally a book on how to practice and perform that puts all others to shame. The most useful information on proper body etiquette,multiple options on how to memorize and repair technique and musical problems.

I got a LOT out of this book. The suggestions helped me flesh out many misunderstandings I have at the piano. My teacher told me it's all about concentration and Seymour Bernstein gives tons of suggestions to helped get me to the level of concentration I needed to achieve. I'm an A.D.D. type, mind wondering practicer who focused way too much on muscle memory even though I consider myself musical and the piano hasn't been my primary instrument. That led me to certain distracting physical challenges that took away from the musicality. This book will help you understand how to listen to yourself better and consider all of the notes when you're playing instead of the bulling though hard parts. Get this book, The Art of Piano Playing by Heinrich Neuahus and Piano Technique by Walter Giesking. These books vary in thier suggestions but you can build a complete point of view out of them to find yourself in your piano playing.
