Summary

Summary

Abby Whiteside (1881-1956) developed a revolutionary approach to piano technique, the idea of a "basic rhythm" involving the entire body that allows students to express the essential emotional rhythm of the music, as well as to play without the risk of the injuries that frequently afflict pianists. Her ideas on piano pedagogy remain essential today.

Library Journal Review

This volume by the revolutionary piano instructor combines her volumes Indispensables of Piano Playing (1955) with Mastering the Chopin Etudes and Other Essays (1969). A bargain for any music collection. (c) Copyright 2010. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc. No redistribution permitted.
