Reviews - What do customers think about What Every Pianist Needs to Know About the Body?

Good Book  Nov 15, 2008
I would recommend "What Every Pianist Needs to Know About the Body" to any student, teacher, or hobbyest of the Piano or Organ. It is very helpful and informative of just how are body is structured, where our points of balance are, and how we utilize those points to enhance our playing. It discusses key information about how we should think of our bodies as we play in order to produce the best music possible, and especially to avoid, or recover from injury. Through understanding of the concepts herein, one can attain balanced playing where ones body is unified with their kinesthetic sense and with the music itself, as they play with ease and satisfaction.
 
Transformative Truth  Mar 17, 2008
I am becoming so much more aware of my body in all of my life and also a much better piano teacher. It will help you to be a healthier and happier person if you take it to heart.
 
Excellent book  Mar 11, 2008
Very informative book. I have to read it again and consult with a physiotherapist. But as far as I understood, it is an extention of Alexander Technique and it further explains all what is used on piano technique. It further explain forearm rotation which is essential for proper piano technique. It also demystifies wrong picture about fingers, wrists, shoulders. In simple words it's a musthavebook.If there is a BODYMAPING course in area where i live, i would already be on that piano class.

Update, I have just finished the book. All pianists should have this book. I am anxious when they release DVD Video related to this book. There is a VHS version for purchase but i'll probably wait for digital one.

 
A well-written book not just for pianists, but for every musicians!  Jan 7, 2008
I am a 17-year-old pianist from New Jersey. I am almost finished with reading this book, and I found this book very useful for mapping my body and applying it to my own playing. This book is not just for pianists, but every musicians. You will be satisfied, and this book will make your playing easier, freer, and more expressive. You will enjoy reading this book. This book will lead you to better playing and you will be aware of your body movements. This is a very well-written book that deserves not just 5 stars, but maybe 10 stars! A wonderful guide.
 
A must have for al pianists; Not just already injured ones  Jan 2, 2008
This book contains a great deal of useful information for all kinds of pianists so the name is actually quite apropiate : What every pianist needs to know about the body. And that's exactly what it is. Unfortunately I discovered this book late, but fortunately, not too late; I've just recovered from a injury that's kept me away for over half a year from playing my beloved instrument. Now I know what I did wrong, and also how to correct it. I'm not saying I'm already done, I will need some rereads of the book. Taking in the process some notes to apply to my daily playing. It won't be easy but it will surely be worth it. I reccomend this book to everyone interested in not just recovering from injury, but also to everyone interested in improving their technique.
