The Gravi-DVD

Most recently a highlight of the 2007 National Conference on Keyboard Pedagogy in Chicago, Dr. Paul Wirth’s presentation on piano technique is now spreading across the country as piano teachers finally have an effective method of making piano playing easy and understandable for their students.

With 26 years of experience teaching young artists at the pre-college level, Dr. Paul Wirth first explains, and then demonstrates the teaching of his successful “Gravity Based Piano Technique.”

Clearly and in great detail, his step-by-step method of teaching students the art of piano technique is revealed in this 90 minute DVD. Joined by 8-year old student Serena Lu, the joy of teaching is evident throughout the teaching demonstration, as advanced concepts – “the most technically freeing skills any pianist can learn” – are applied to the pre-college age group. This is a “must view” for any teacher of advancing young piano students!
