I would like to know your thoughts about the following: what is missing for you in the book? What needs to be addressed more fully, or in a different way? What hasn't been addressed at all that needs to be? If I were to do another book, what would you like to see included in the material?

Yesterday I have received my copy of your interesting DVD. It is a very nice product but I have noted with a bit of disappointment that contrary at what reported on Maple Grove Web Site: "... the PAL DVD itself has menus and subtitles i." the English subtitles are missing... ;-( I am Italian (and first to...

Hi, I am studying piano technique seriously for the first time,although I am not a beginner musician....I have been a rock-metal guitarist for many years and I am very keen on great technique and musicianship. However,for the past 6 years I became very fond about learning harmony and composition,so I ditched the gui...

I'm a guitarist, not a pianist, who has watched the demo and is now waiting for the dvd and book to arrive. Already my legato is better, as is my ability to extend my left-hand (my fretting hand) to comfortably reach what had been difficult. With my new awareness of my hands I have also discovered a few easier fingerin...

Hi Alan, I've read some of the posts and there are certain places where you stated that things you said on your DVD are wrong; one post I can recall is under Student Evaluation you were helping a guy by the name of Bangity and when discussing octaves you said that now you learned more about the thumb and the way you pr...

When I ordered the DVD I thought it would be charged to my PayPal or credit card account, but it wasn't. The DVD arrived anyway. (And I like it!) I wasn't charged for it, but I received a bill from Jovan to be paid by check in €uros. I live in theU$A. I need advice. Laird

hi everyone, I'm from Hong Kong, and new to this forum. It's nice to found this forum! First, about how I came to Alan fraser's book: I am a scientifically inclined person, but have a great passion in classical music (at the amateur level, of course) However, I started my piano education very late and have a poor...

Hello Forum I am somewhat reluctant to post in this forum because this could suggest that I am in the same legue - as far as piano playing goes - as the other posters. This could not be further from the truth! Having dabbled at the piano as a schoolkid some 40 years ago with some intermediate attemps to get started ag...

Not sure if these are "faithful" records of Horowitz's transcriptions. The edition doesn't seem good, but as they are free, what more can we ask for?

Approach To The DVD comment 10

3 years ago by A Pianist

I just received the dvd and really, really like it. I have a question about how to approach it. Should I sit with it and get the techniques down before I get back to shedding the pieces I'm trying to learn or should I take it bit by bit? Thanks, Matt

I'M ANXIOUS!!! I really want to watch this DVD. after watching the demo on youTube. Maaaan.... I just really wanna watch it. How long will it take the DVD to get to me in California? I got the shipment notification on monday. Is there anyway I could track the item...? i DO know I'm far away. thanks.

I hope my story is interesting enough to justify troubling you for some advice. I was a keen pianist at school. In my only public performance I played the C sharp minor fantasie impromptu. When I went out to work I more or less dropped the piano for 25 years. Now I have decided to give it another go. I bough...

Ordered The DVD comment 3

3 years ago by A Pianist

I ordered the DVD just now, I'm very happy with this decision and look forward to start working with it. I read also the blog at and can relate with this story very well: wanting to play the more bigger works but never to be able to because of technical limitations. In my case, I feel that the biggest limitation i...
