Master Class #22: The Science of Touch

About this video

This is an advanced class intended for, but not limited to, jazz pianists, to introduce the art of touch in piano playing and performance. The subject of creating and controlling the aspect of touch in playing is a vast subject. In the classical piano tradition there are intire schools of thought devotoed to the science of controlling piano touch. The very production of a sound played by a finger is often subject to a complex and exacting application of various muscles, tendons, various non-related parts of the body etc.

Unfortunately, there is no handout available for this master class (yet).
