The later part of the book is about various technique/suggestions. Being a piano novice I wouldn't dare to validate this part. I did find some interesting anecdotes about playing the piano but I still need some help from my teacher on a few chapters.
piano again and came across this book. It is full
of wonderful anecdotes and advice, not only for
pianists but for anyone who plays an instrument.
One-by-one, Berstein demolishes the myths and
misunderstandings that keep us from exercising
and enjoying our talents. He teaches us that
mistakes and slips are natural and OK; invokes
us to strike the right balance between technical
excellence and emotional openness. His anecdotes,
drawn from real-life experiences with his
students, are valulable object lessons.
