May 25, Edward rated it really liked it. A stern volume that contains some excellent advice - namely, that hard work on polishing the nuances of your playing will result in a dramatic improvements in your music-making. I found the memorisation technique suggested by Leimer where one studies and memorises the score away from the piano very difficult, but I have managed to put it into effect on simple pieces with very good results.

Jun 21, Keith rated it really liked it Shelves: music , back-burner. May 21, Mikaela rated it liked it. This book includes two separate treatises written by Geiseking and his teacher Leimer. The first book had some interesting theories about note-learning. I really liked the idea of many half-hour practice sessions with breaks in between rather than a full-blown 3 hour one.

I'm not sure many of his ideas were sold to me and I feel like the blame should lie with the 'theoretical' book format.

If Gieseking had access to the internet, I'm sure these pages would have made great videos on YouTube, espec This book includes two separate treatises written by Geiseking and his teacher Leimer. If Gieseking had access to the internet, I'm sure these pages would have made great videos on YouTube, especially where we can see some of the theories put into practice.

As it is, I found it very hard to apply the ideas firstly without a practical example and secondly without further guidance from a teacher. Overall, an interesting read but don't expect to progress much unless you can manage to exercise strict self-control and follow their instructions perfectly. May 23, Analisa rated it really liked it. One main point I got from this book is how important it is for pianists to train their ears to hear not only the tone pitch, but also the exact tone quality, tone duration, and tone strength.

And all this takes continual control and the utmost concentration. I shouldn't mindlessly play the piano anymore :. Dec 04, Bruno rated it really liked it Shelves: music , non-fiction. Zeer erm Zeer interessant voor zowel de beginner als de gevorderde --ik vermoed dat ik er later nog naar ga teruggrijpen. Language can be a little dated, but the book still offers practical insights to playing and teaching the piano.
