​Piano lessons and the importance of relaxation

​​​Playing the piano should be the most relaxing experience of your day, at least from the muscular point of view.One of the key elements of a good piano technique is to learn and disengage those muscles which are not directly involved in the act of playing. As the fingers do not have enough mass to comfortable cope with the resistance of the keys we need to direct all the weight of our arms to their tips. For this reason we put a big emphasis on developing our finger muscles so we can manage to amplify our dynamic range while we keep all our system stress under control.According to our studies, when using the Scaramuzza piano technique, the fingers act as the fundamental and most frequently applied of pianistic movement. Actually, it is used in 85% of the cases and it is by far the best choice to perform legato melodic passages as well as crisp classical scales.Perfecting an optimum triggering mechanism is paramount to guarantee a well-defined tone quality as well as a fast reaction speed. Learning to lift our fingers up -to set them in a ready-to-play position- collaborates with the evenness of touch, so important when trying to achieve that stylistic transparency so sought after by classical pianists…
