All about hands, circles and piano technique
 

OK. So I donít really mean circles. What do ovals, semi ovals, semi circles and semi arcs have to do with piano technique? One important way to look at piano technique is from the standpoint of human anatomy.

Try to imagine the following. All of a sudden, you have one foot that is one and a half feet shorter than the other foot.

Whether we are aware of it or not, we all swing or rotate our hips in circles as we walk down the street. Of course, most of us forget that we started to learn this motion at the age of one or one and a half years. It took some practice but what the hell, at that age, all we had was lots of time to practice simple but profound things like that.


 


Then all of a sudden, at the age of 22, one of our feet shrinks by one and one half feet. Can you imagine what kind of change that would cause in our hip movement when we try to walk? What were once small, subtle circular movements are now huge distorted circular movements.

The analogy I am drawing is that everybody's  fingers are different lengths and to ballet dance on the keys, it is a must that we learn how use a whole variety of subtle but important rotations to accommodate and facilitate our playing.

In the next article, I will go into more detail about what these movements look like in specific circumstances and more about piano technique.
