Great Articles to Read

In my latest peruse through the internet, I found a fabulous site - Pianocareer.com.  The author, Ilinca Vartic is a Russian pianist and teacher.  I read through her recent posting on the use of the piano pedals and then watched the videos.  She is wonderfully articulate and does a beautiful job of explaining the techniques and the mechanics of the pedal.   I immediately thought the videos would be a great addition to a group class for intermediate and advanced students.

She also has several other articles that I briefly looked and also seem well done.  I'm looking forward to checking her site more closely.  As an added bonus, if you subsribe to her site, she will send you a free download - "A New Perspective on Piano Phrasing: How to Transform a Boring Performance Into a Captivating One in 3 Creative Steps"! 

If you haven't seen it yet, I would encourage you to head on over and take a look!

Hi Sheryl, thanks for sharing this amazing resource with your readers. Nevertheless, I would like to point out that Ilinca is Romanian, not Russian, she just happens to have studied the Russian piano school from early childhood.

Thank you ;)
