The Natural Piano Technique

eBook: The Natural Piano Technique

"The Natural Piano Technique" is a book on how to play the piano better.

The science of movement, in the third millennium, allows pianists to know and analyze their refined movements perfectly.

Playing the piano is easy if the anatomical and functional laws of the human body are respected, while, conversely, it can be extremely difficult, and require endless hours of study, if we force the human body to do unnatural and not physiological actions.

This work, through a rigorously rational analysis of the piano technique, aims to help readers to raise their potential in order to express their musical, expressive and artistic thoughts with ease, immediacy and naturalness.

Robert Schumann - The piano Works

eBook: Robert Schumann - The Piano Works

Surprisingly, the work of a composer like Robert Schumann (1810-1856), essential for the understanding of musical Romanticism, is still not known in its entirety.

Even in the corpus of works for piano, an essential vehicle of the author's fruitful poetic vein, famous masterpieces are placed side by side with works little known to the general public and little proposed by the performers.

Instead, it is a fantastic, fascinating journey, perhaps intricate and not immediately understandable, but always full of vivid imagination, lyricism, and burning expressive immediacy.

The text tries to untie the knots of this expressive abyss, revealing the interweaving of dreams, passions, ambitions and intimacy of the tormented existence of this brilliant author.

Beethoven's Family Romance

eBook: Beethoven's Family Romance

In 1908 Sigmund Freud was the first to speak about family romance as a complex of conscious and unconscious fantasies, which sometimes develop in the pre-adolescent age.

The family romance implies the construction of articulated stories about one's birth, imagining that they are not children of biological parents but, for example, of noble and powerful characters.

The biography of Ludwig van Beethoven is proposed in a series of episodes that retrace his human and artistic life, from birth to death, taking into account the composer’s family romance.

The narrative stems from the study of documents and volumes dedicated to Beethoven, and it is based on the pages of one of the most famous and authoritative Beethoven biographers, Maynard Solomon.

You can read the first chapter and consult the eBook index here, or buy it at a cost of 25.00 GBP.

"Music produces a kind of pleasure which human nature cannot do without." Confucius

Igino Vaccari piano teacher

I am a classically trained pianist and musician, and an active performer since I was just eight years old.

I began my music education at the age of six in my hometown, Motta di Livenza in Italy, and in 1987 I obtained a Diploma in Piano at the Conservatory of Music "G. Tartini" in Trieste with top marks cum laude.

Throughout my education I developed my skills by attending numerous master classes led by Orazio Frugoni (Florence and Arezzo), Victor Merzhanov (Tambov, Sulmona), Tatiana Nikolaeva, Andrzej Jasinsky, Karl-Heinz Kämmerling (Salzburg "Mozarteum" Academy), Lev Naumov (Castelfranco Veneto), Andrzej Esterhazy (London).

I have been awarded first prizes in national and international piano competitions (Messina, Albenga, "C.Soliva" Casale Monferrato).

I love working with children and adults and, with over twenty years of successful teaching experience, I am adept at developing the abilities of students.

Both with playing the piano and reading music I enable them to reach their potential through a creative approach, and introduce them to the world and beauty of music.

"I wondered whether music might not be the unique example of what might have been, if the invention of language, the formation of words, the analysis of ideas had not intervened, the means of communication between souls." Proust
