Editorial Reviews

25 progressive exercises are featured, keeping you focused on the goal, such as

1. How to make one hand play a legato/smooth musical passage while the other hand creates a bouncy, crisp, staccato touch.
2. How to master the technique of hand eye coordination by alternating melody with right hand and left hand.
Not only do you practice the coordination, you are also composing a new piece by following our step-by-step exercise.
3. How to train your left hand to be more independent.
4. How to use harmonic and melodic 3rd to create unexpected fillers and turn-arounds.
5. How to form the transitional phrasing use harmonic and melodic 6th. This is one of the most effective way to bridge any music.
6. The technique of creating beautiful tones - Everyone play piano with different tones. The way you capture the hearts of your listeners lies in your abilities to create beautiful tones. This is what separates a pro from an amateur.
7. Arpeggios' Magic - You will find out why piano arpeggios are the building blocks of all runs. And why you need to know them inside and out, if you truly want to be a master of piano runs. We provide many exercises for you to warm up using this unique technique.
8. We also show you how to create your own runs by taking out certain arpeggios notes and adding in additional notes. Arpeggio fingering are also shown.
9. Contrary Motions - One of the most effective ways to add in runs and fillers is by using contrary motions. We will show you how to incorporate the dynamic (volume control) along with contrary motions to enhance your piano playing skills.
10. Expressive piano playing - Great composer, Chopin is the master of expressive piano playing. We will demonstrate how you can imitate his playing to strengthen your own style by using combinations of dynamics control, contrary motions, and articulations.

I am an intermediate piano player who is trying to learn and improve my ability to improvise. I've played the piano for over 35 years, but only played reading sheet music. After previously buying Yoke Wong's Definitive Piano Improvisation Course, I saw this course online and thought it would give me an additional source of information on some basics of being able to improvise. It is a great course full of exercises that include hand coordination exercises, dynamics of sound control, using arpeggios and runs all laid out in a simple to understand format as only Yoke Wong does. Even though I'm at an intermediate level, I thought maybe this course might be too basic for me. It was not. She presents the material in a manner that was new and refreshing, and the course gave me new ways to practice. I loved it. Yoke Wong is a talented piano instructor and her courses offer a tremendous amount of knowledge to the purchaser. I love having this course in my DVD library of ways to improve my playing. I highly recommend this course to any level piano player.

I see this course as 1. a good course to improve your piano skills, especially hand coordination. 2. a step up from playing music according to the staff to creating music.
It teaches classic runs and fillers. After learning these, you will see the usual music pieces differently.

A lot of what the instructor says on the video doesn't match what she has in the accompanying notebook. It's a great review tool for those who already have a piano background and want to brush up. As with any program, you must practice, practice, practice, or it won't do you much good.
