19th Online Piano Lesson: From Unusual Locations


Posted on 28 Jul 2022 21:00 in ASKSiddhiのひとりごと by Yoko Deshmukh

I wish Pune also had such a room for acoustic piano practice.

I, fortunately, found a sophisticated large piano practice studio in the current city I am visiting. So I requested my teacher's time for a lesson, hoping I would book a room with a Fazioli piano.


However, according to the staff, the Fazioli for practice was under maintenance for the entire week; thus, I reserved a room with YAMAHA grand piano instead.

Interestingly, my teacher was also at an irregular location that day and was with his Casio digital piano.


What were the most remarkable learning him that day:
"Do not copy the way a performer in any CD plays, like most 17-odd million Chinese children might be following. You have to take your own time in conquering a piece in a way repeating the same line 15 or 50 times, and that is far better than missing a note or two. It is the only way to get closer to your interpretation of a song."

I also envied and admired his endless curiosity about learning things, including an ancient Greek scholar's epic story he picked up as an example, which was apparently complicated yet he swallowed by reading it multiple times.
