We just received this in the mail: My craft of piano has finally arrived. I count it a priviledge to view the new insights that come from Alan frasier' teachings. We never stop learning. I will only suggest that Alan will try to give consideration to the fact that we live in a world full of barriers and one great...

A while ago I received the following from a Dutch musician. I share it with you here along with my responses... Dear Mr. Fraser, With great interest I read your book “The craft of Piano Playing”. Besides playing the modern piano, I play the fortepiano, the clavichord and the harpsichord. I am the lucky owner of...

Just got this request for advice from pianist Albert Rossi... Dear Prof. Fraser, I have purchased your 2003 edition book and your DVD, and am writing to you to ask for a bit of further advice. I studied piano from ages 12 through 19, first with a private teacher and then for a year as a piano major at Indian...

I got an email question from a young pianist the other day that I thought would clarify some of the basic problems in piano technque. Here's the email followed by my response. "I'm a 17 year old pianist, and had never considered technique before I was recently attacked in that area by many teachers at a p...

I happened to come across your piano technique website and was very impressed by breadth of information on the site. Your reviews about piano technique were extremely informative, logical, and convincing, especially the ones about Taubman and Lister-Sink. One point that stood out to me was your observation that Liste...

Hello Alan, I am intrigued by your book and DVD on piano technique. I am an amateur pianist trying to play Chopin etudes but am running into obstacles along the way. For example, Chopin's etude in C Major, Op.10, No. 1. My right hand and forearm become tired very quickly playing the arpeggios. My questions are 1) Can...

I'm wondering where to order the DVD. I sent some email I found on Maple Grove Productions, but was returned undeliverable. Is it true it ships from SERBIA????? Also I see some on Amazon, but way over $100.00!!! - what are those? Why isn't the DVD readily available? Thanks, Issy

Wanda Landowska comment 4

First I must tell you that I'm not a pianist (former classical guitar player). I am an artist. I've been researching Wanda Landowska for info and images for a painting. In my search I came across a post from Alan Fraser in reference to photos of Ms Landowska's hands. I have had a difficult time finding any really good...

Demo Does It comment 2

Alan, Your marketing approach of displaying a demo from your video really worked in my case. I think I found your site when I was searching for any sites relating to Taubman Technique. I had just learned about her when I interviewed a pianist for my site, New York Pianist. Then I came across your site, and viewed yo...
