  • Finding The Right Piano Practice Method

    Rachel Murphy Classical Piano Teacher (South East London) Picture We all have that one tricky passage that just doesn't seem to be getting any better no matter how many times you play it - whether it's a difficult rhythm, awkward notes or just isn't clicking somehow. Different pianists find different practice methods work best for them, it takes patience and...
