To celebrate Menahem Pressler's 90th birthday on December 16, we're giving away a copy of Menahem Pressler: Artistry in Piano Teaching! This book outlines Pressler's approach to performance and teaching, including technical exercises, principles of relaxation and total body involvement, and images to guide the pianist's creativity toward expressive interpretation. Insights from the author's own lessons, interviews with Pressler, and recollections of more than 100 Pressler students from the past 50 years are gathered in this text. A must-have for pianists and all music lovers!
