How to practice with less pedal. #pianopractice #dogsofinstagram
Easy Bach maybe... :)
You guys haven't lived until you've followed the rowdy crew from the harpsichord page.
Still my favorite quote -- one by Samuil Feinberg:
My time, my precious time! This picture stole it.
My favorite pedal. Wish I had one at the studio! If you play really well, he sings along while he dreams.
Next time I talk about rhythm I’m referring back to this — amazing to watch!

Paul’s haircut aside, this is such a great little snippet of an interview. I love the slowness of it.
Everything wrong in the world can best be explained that in a modern era, this would be people like Post Malone and Jimmy Fallon. Or better yet, can you imagine a Taylor Swift or a Billie Eilish referencing a Bach chorale?

I remember my piano technician used to always roll his eyes and say “musicians are so weird.” I can’t help but think of that as I post this picture of dead composers’ hands... Happy Tuesday!

Like Steve Martin says in The Jerk -- "I'm somebody now!"
Participants were given a 5-finger exercise to practice. Then, a second group of participants were asked to 'think' about the practice exercise. Both groups activated the same areas of the brain. Thoughts will change how your brain works. If the piano teaching encounter is not evidence-based and to the advantage of the student's developmental need, then music education will become associated as traumatic. Likewise, a piano student who practices mentally, will still reap the benefits of their practice. This has everything to do with nonverbal autistic students with dyspraxia, who deserve a music education even if they can't prove their knowledge without hand support. Their production is not facilitated or controlled by the caregiver--but rather from their mental process. They can progress through the curriculum without playing independently. How empowering!
Yes... But it’s difficult to find as I have no sign.

Words to live by
My life in a nutshell
I think the part of my job I secretly love the most is getting to be a personal DJ with songs my students learn. If you could drop 5 songs from the "Golden Age" on a young listener today -- what would you pick?
I had a student who peppered their playlist with Everly Brothers songs which brought me no shortage of joy.
