- How to Increase Your Inner Essence of Music on October 24th, 2011
Your ability to express is based on your previous experiences. The more colorful and wide your knowledge and experience is the richer the reflection or interpretation of a musical piece can be. So listen to different music and widen and enrich your musical specter. This idea is also mentioned by Heinrich Neuhaus in his book “The Art of Piano Playing”.
The more flexible and adaptable your body is, the better it is to use it as a channel between the piano and our musicality. If you increase awareness about possible motions of your body, your subconsious self and your habits will start using the new discoveries. Knowing and learning actively is like a door, through which information and skills go into our deeper self.

A functioning piano technique.

When that energy of play is combined with high and fine craft and intelligence, this can form a miracle.
