Piano methods have always been contentious subjects. Piano Journey explains in detail, with many musical examples, the never before published method of the great French virtuoso pianist Marcel Ciampi. This is one of the first methods which amalgamated ideas from the Russian tradition, which dealt a blow to the old French school of piano playing and will be of historical and practical interest to more advanced pianists. The book is in part an autobiographical account of the early stages of the authors' own journey, which includes his perceptions of differences between studying in London and Paris in the mid twentieth century. Drawing upon the authors' extensive psychotherapeutic knowledge, the book explores some of the issues of performance anxiety and is designed to give encouragement and help to all those who are seeking ways forward with their piano playing. Piano Journey is suitable for pianists looking to advance their studies, either technically or psychologically, and offers support and guidance throughout.

Why does a piano sound like a piano? A similar question can be asked of virtually all musical instruments. A particular note-such as middle C-can be produced by a piano, a violin, a clarinet, and many other instruments, yet it is easy for even a musically untrained listener to distinguish between these different instruments. A central quest in the study of musical instruments is to understand why the sound of the "same" note depends greatly on the instrument, and to elucidate which aspects of an instrument are most critical in producing the musical tones characteristic of the instrument. The primary goal of this book is to investigate these questions for the piano. The explanations in this book use a minimum of mathematics, and are intended for anyone who is interested in music and musical instruments. At the same time, there are many insights relating physics and the piano that will likely be interesting and perhaps surprising for many physicists.
