After retiring after my 70th birthday, I decided to go back to the piano after a 35+ year ‘break’. I knew this would be a challenge but I forced myself to go back to the basic. Scales, exercises, breaking pieces down to relearn them. Then I came across David’s book “Secrets to Better Piano Playing” after watching a number of his YouTube videos. He absolutely nails it for developing a proper practice regimen. His book gave me some much needed direction and allowed me to refocus on the music and not just punching keys. I’ve got a long way to go but his book has helped me focus on what I need to do. Patience is the key.
As a beginner I’m enjoying the lessons and love the notes.
Like everything else needs practice but looking at David’s videos playing, helps a lot to know how to flow over the keys, and playing these notes are fun and definitely joyful to listen to.
Thank you David 🙏
This book will give you all the information you need to become a world-class pianist. However, whether you become one or not depends on how you use and respect the information contained in this book! 5 stars!
Secrets to Better Piano Playing, is a delight to read, easy and straight to the point, and yes, I am finding it extremely useful. It brought my mind into perspective and thus it is helping me a lot even though I am an adult learner. Together with The Ultimate Piano Workout, I feel I have improved a lot.
I have read through David's book several times! I have been playing for 40 years along with teaching students. Secrets to Better Piano Playing has provided me with some great insights and tips that I have used with students that instantly produced results for them! Thanks David for taking the time to write this book and share your "best practices." I recommend this book to everyone who longs to enhance their playing!
