Short Author Bio
Canadian pianist Alan Fraser has created a new approach to piano technique that accesses the innate structure and function of the human hand to replace tension and over-relaxation with effective hand activation. His book and DVD, The Craft of Piano Playing, presents this new approach in detail, with an extensive series of exercise to align one's skeleton, enrich one's sound, increase virtuosity, and eliminate the danger of injury before it ever arises.
