Piano technique is more than the physical ability to render the printed page of music accurately; it is the vehicle for interpretation, the key to musical expression. Lire la première page

an extremely helpful and original work 12 juin 2002
Par R. Peltzman - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
As a pianist I've read MANY books regarding piano technique. Seymour Fink's Mastering Piano Technique is a well thought out and extremely helpful addition to the literature. It is similar in content to the classic technique book by Abbey Whiteside. Based on total understanding of the pianist's physiology, both authors are in favor of utilizing shoulder, arm, torso, legs, etc. in conjunction with fingers to produce sounds. Various parts of the body work as levers - each logically taking more or less responsibility based on the demands of the music. This reduces the chances of developing tension. Fink's ideas make for better music making by having the pianists movement absolutely linked to phrasing and articulation. As with the Whiteside book, it is not always easy reading....but it is worth the effort in the end.
As I mentioned, Fink has categorized different movements which correspond with certain sounds and articulation. Ultimately these movements make playing imminently easier. Fink creates keyboard choreography which the pianist can keep coming back to as the demands of the music dictate. Fink's ideas such as "fingersnaps", "pronation" etc. satisfied a variety of musical and technical requirements.
In my experience no one book on technique can totally satisfy all of the technical demands of piano playing. That would be the same as claiming there is only one right interpretation for each piece of music. Fink's myriad ideas and solutions pertaining to piano technique make this book absolutely worth having: everyone can absolutely take something useful away from this book.

A MUST for the Pianist 30 août 2004
Par Mark Werling - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
This work of Mr. Fink is absolutely magnificant. For the aspiring concert pianist, for the serious student, or for piano lovers who would simply like to improve their fluidity and definition at the keyboard. Having owned the volume for about a week now, I'm at the point where I think Seymour FInk's book should be in every School of Music, USA as a textbook. THe ten physical exercises done away from the piano are so complimentary and helpful. Mr. FInk seems to be a physiologist and anatomist of the human body, as well as a piano master, and this combination makes his perspective superior. Mr. Fink takes the mystery out of fine piano technique and brings exact motoral and muscular distribution matters to light in plain view, solving scores of execution difficulties pianists incur. Highly detailed! Buy this and begin using it, but the reader will not exhaust this volume in a few weeks. It is a referance volume for a lifetime. God bless Seymour Fink! In reply to the negative reviews, I would say there could be some difficulty of appreciation to the novice pianist who is at early stages of familiarity with the piano keyboard. This volume is extremely helpful to those of us who take the piano seriously and are intent on mastery.

An excellent work, invaluable to all pianists. 7 juin 2005
Par Stanley D. Wolfersberger - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
I studied with Mr. Fink throughout my high-school/college preparatory years and so experienced his technical work first-hand. After studying piano at the university level, I finally got around to picking up a copy of his book. Reading through reminded me of the many exercises we went through. I think that Mr. Fink's suggestions on technique are of good resource for all serious pianists. As others have pointed out here, a literal interpretation of the illustrations is not the intended point. It is most useful to use the techniques illustrated as a guide and then adapt them to your own particular usage.

Healthy approach to piano technique 3 septembre 2001
Par Hutber - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
As a trained dancer, pianist, and teacher I have thoroughly appreciated Professor Fink's complete physical approach to piano technique. I have found it congruent with physical movement principles and especially applaud his emphasis on movement originating from the torso and the use of large muscle groups in sound production. As a teacher I have found it an exceedingly helpful guide for developing within students a thoughtful awareness of how their body "dances" at the piano in the creation of a musically beautiful and expressive performance. This book and video promote a healthy, whole body approach that is essential to long-term physical fitness at the piano. It is thoroughly worth the time and effort to study and master the principles laid out in Mastering Piano Technique.

missing the most important ingredients 19 août 2005
Par Alvin Chan - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
This book describes mainly the kinds of movement we need at the piano. Indeed we (or most of us) will be benefited from a proper understanding and training of the physical part of piano playing, so I admire the attempt of the auther. The problem with this book is, however, that it is far from complete and actually it misses some of the most important ingredients of piano techniques.

It is sometimes helpful to isolate the movements and be conscious of the movements. However, this book tells you (mainly) only the external movements, and not much about the much more important "internal activity" which is invisible from whatever companion video or pictures. It is easy to teach external movements-- you don't actually have to buy this book, just find a DVD played by any good pianist. But everyone knows the (seemingly) paradox: different external movements can be used to play the same difficult passage. And many people learn the same external movements intentionally,and they succeed in making their movements very much the same as those of the masters, but still they fail to produce a comparable effects of these masters. Why?? This is so puzzling for the teachers. That's why some people came up with a conclusion: There is no "superior" way of playing a passage. Everyone have a different needs. While this is to some extent correct, it should not prevent us from seeking a good technique intentionally.

The paradox is due to a mixing up of objective and subjective experience, as well as an ignorance about the inner activities of our bodies. While you can learn the movements for sure, the difficult and important part is the invisible inner activity; the integrity of hand structure. You need these internal organization to enpower your movements. That's the crucial difference between you in first few piano lessons(with possibly already "correct" movements as enforced by your teacher) and you at the present moment. We got better in our organization of motions in the first few years, but most of us stop somewhere. All these inner things cannot be learnt from pictures, videos, normal piano teachers. The author does know the crucial point. However, he was not able to explain how you can get there. He can only show you the eternal movement and sometimes describe vaguely the correct feeling.

I can find a number of books which describe the inner activity involved. But up to now the most practical book on this is "the craft of Piano Playing" by Alan Fraser. This book is full of practical advices and innovative exercises to help the readers, rather than providing only general theory. It aims more at improving your hand functions than hand shape, movements, etc..

This "mastering piano technique" can be useful if you learn the more important points first. Also, occasionally, it does provide some helpful advices on eradicating certain bad habits. But still the movements can only give you some suggestions. Improving your hand functions is the first and foremost, and the movements serve this purpose. Aim at functions, not movements.
