A master class on piano performance and pedagogy from the world-renowned concert pianist

In this newly revised edition of a comprehensive guide to piano technique, performance, and music interpretation, renowned performing musician, recording artist, and teacher Boris Berman addresses virtually every aspect of musical artistry and pedagogy. Ranging from such practical matters as sound, touch, and pedaling to the psychology of performing and teaching, this essential volume provides a master class for the performer, instructor, and student alike. It is also available as a multimedia e-Book.

Boris Berman is chair of the piano department at the Yale School of Music and a Grammy Award-nominated recording artist who performs as a soloist, recitalist, and chamber musician. He conducts master classes throughout the world.

"As always, Mr. Berman combines sage advice with an approach to teaching which is the opposite of Procrustean.  He is interested in helping the student to improve his particular personality rather than apply one particular method to all students.  This is the most difficult and yet the essential dimension of inspired teaching, and Mr. Berman has always been a distinguished exponent."—Emanuel Ax
