I have created an exercise specifically for the 4th finger, the digit I'd found most problematic. Since incorporating my 4th finger exercise into my daily regimen, my piano now sounds more and more like a string instrument, and less and less like a percussion instrument.

  Robert Schumann, the great composer and pianist, lamented what he called "the dance of virtuosity". He was referring to pianists demonstrating their impressive techniques, but evoking minimal emotional responses in their listeners. Schumann maintained that the heart of the problem was the inherent weakness of the 4th finger.

  So he resolved to develop an exercise for overcoming this 4th finger weakness. When that endeavor failed, he resorted to the use of a mechanical instrument. In using it he severed a tendon, destroying his piano career. Tragically, Schumann ended his life in a mental institution.

  I created what eluded Robert Schumann----a 4th finger exercise that has dramatically augmented my touch. It makes all the difference.

  Wm. F. Buckley, Jr. [concert harpsichordist, TV commentator, inventor of printing sharps and flats in red] called my work "an awesome contribution".

If attaining a similar difference in your touch interests you, please
