pianomap: The video "What Every Pianist Needs to Know about the Body"

In this video companion to the book, Thomas Mark describes and demonstrates the places of balance, standing and sitting in balance, structure and movement of the hands and arms, and other topics. Readers of the book who watch the video, follow the demonstrations, and imitate the movements will learn to experience the material, as if in an actual lesson with Thomas Mark. The video will help students to develop improved body awareness and a better quality of movment. Teachers will gain insight into common problems and how to correct them.

Movement based on an accurate and adequate body map can transform a pianist's playing while guaranteeing freedom from injury. The basic concepts and anatomical information needed by pianists, which are presented in What Every Pianist Needs to Know about the Body, come to life in this video.

The video is available in DVD format (Catalogue # DVD-566) or in VHS format (Catalogue # VHS-566). To order the book or the video, call GIA Publications at 800 442-1358 or 708 496-3800, or order online.
