How to Widen Freedom in Playing the Piano (Part 1)
Of course, absolute freedom is impossible. But if you move your hand through the air for example, you can do it very freely and also with a very high tension. Because playing the piano is a huge system of habits and contains so many different details, the “complexity” could lead into habits of using lot of unnecessary tensions. If these tensions become your natural habits, you do not sense that anything is “wrong” because you are too used to this. But knowingly widening the picture and getting out of the “habit zone” can open up fields that can completely change your piano playing and make it more enjoyable.
