Theory, and Knowledge

I use a lot my knowledge of counterpoint, of harmony, of musical forms, of orchestration, of history of musical styles. While teaching the repertoire to young pianist or to piano lover, I find with him the logic of composition of the musical piece such as musical elements and means of composition used by the author to create his work.

The analysis of work from the point of view of its composition help us to acquire its global vision and consequently, to learn it by heart very quickly by putting ourselves on a place of composer during interpretation.

With a pupil, we listen, we analyse, and we compare different interpretations of works that he plays. This is the recordings of the great pianists of the XXth century.
