Wouldn't you like your piano to sound more beautiful - more like a violin than a drum? I can help you do this. Because I discovered a link between what goes on inside our hands, and the degree of pressure our fingers apply to the keys.



I studied medical textbooks on hand anatomy, and discovered that practicing and playing the piano gradually causes our hand muscles to become unbalanced. For example, the piano requires an unnatural thumb movement - in the same direction as the other fingers - not in its natural opposite direction. For the other fingers, we continually use the flexor muscles to depress the keys, but the extensor muscles are neglected because the keys come up automatically.

While we're playing, these imbalances are imperceptible. However, with repetition, the cumulative effect of playing with unbalanced muscles is profound. Counter-natural use of hand muscles causes excessive finger pressure onto the keys, reducing our range of tones. And, among classical pianists, the number of hand injuries is far more than would occur merely by chance.


If our hand muscles were balanced, our tonal range would expand, beyond what we can now only imagine. I have created two muscle-balancing exercises, for the thumbs and for the other fingers. These exercises don't take long to do, but the difference they make is crucial.


Once I began balancing my hand muscles, my piano started sounding dynamically better and better. More importantly, your piano can sound better and better as well.
