Bernie Sirelson

Author Bernie Sirelsonabout this book: Five Magical Piano Practice Techniques is my first book, focusing on specific ways of approaching some of the difficulties a student of piano might encounter with their exercises and repertoire.

While this book is the first of a series, all outlining very useful techniques for success, my primary intent is that these inspire an overall Practice of Practicing.

One must have the integrity of "just doing it" of course. And then there is the possibility of making up one's own "Magical Practice Techniques" to approach new musical challenges.

As a piano teacher, one of my intentions is that my students are fluid and free to approach every piece of music for it's own unique qualities and challenges. So the idea of a very specific set of techniques might seem antithetical to this. However, just as practicing with a metronome will not undermine your ability to play the music with feeling (in fact, it will enhance it greatly), so will learning these specific techniques inspire that very creativity needed for a unique approach to every piece of music.

Mastery of the details yields the freedom to transcend them.
