Boris Berman, professor of piano at the Yale School of Music, has given concerts and master classes around the world and has many recordings to his credit.
"The book is neither too elementary nor too advanced for any pianist, piano teacher or piano lover. It is informative, inspiring, and entertaining." Claude Frank "What makes Mr. Berman's book so persuasive and enlightening is his understanding that there is no one 'method' of teaching music - each relationship with a student is a process of discovery for teacher and student both." Emanuel Ax "A very instructive, imaginative, and stimulating book." Radu Lupu "Readers who want to become better pianists will welcome Berman's master class. Highly recommended." Library Journal "Pianists will value Berman's stimulating and personal thoughts and will appreciate the opportunity to learn from this contemporary artist." Choice
