Coordinate Movement for Pianists: Anatomy, Technique and Wellness Principles

By Lisa Marsh
GIA Publications

Coordinate Movement for Pianists explores the art and science of playing piano from a fundamental yet often overlooked perspective: sound is the result of movement. What movements, then, produce the most desirable sounds at the piano?

Drawing from experience in the fields of piano instruction, medicine, and Body Mapping, author Lisa Marsh presents a detailed discussion — complete with anatomical drawings and music examples — about the types of movement that contribute to a healthy, fluid, and versatile piano technique.

This book is a brilliant reminder that healthy movement is the basis for a fulfilling and lifelong enjoyment of the piano. Regardless of experience or level, students and teachers alike are certain to gain new inspiration and reap the benefits of applying these ideas to their own craft.
