Motivating students to develop musical skills at the piano is a constant challenge for teachers. Attractive repertoire is elusive, yet the need exists throughout a pianist's life.
The book invites students to explore for themselves the intricacies of the instrument, comparing the characteristics of the high notes with the low ones, the effects of the pedals, playing with the lid open and more.
