Today is my stop on The Influence of Piano blog tour and I am here today to share with you all an extract from the book!
Title: The Influence of Piano Publisher: Clink Street Publishing Published: 6th August 2019 Format: Paperback Source:: N/A Add It:Amazon UK. Goodreads. Summary: Why do lawyers want to learn to play the piano? At first sight jurisprudence, with its exhaustive logic, rules and standard tasks, is poles apart from the sensual world of music, but in reality it just seems so. Although this book will be of particular interest to lawyers it also will have a much wider appeal to anyone who is dedicated to learning the piano from beginners to professionals. By reading this book, you will learn how and why training in music develops logical, abstract and creative thinking, and contributes to success in every sphere of human life.
Liana was born and raised in Russia in the former Soviet Union where she studied music and psychology. She moved to the UK in 1999 and currently lives and works in Oxfordshire. Her passion is research into how learning to play the piano can improve the function of the brain and enhance the memory. As a direct result of her researches she has developed her own technique to teach students to play the piano concentrating on using the right side of the brain which is associated with people who tend to be creative and artistic. She has also developed a system of "musical maths" to improve sight-reading and memory. Her students cover a wide spectrum from children to retirees ranging from beginners to professionals. When not teaching she enjoys spending as much time as possible with her young son, including, paradoxically, teaching him to play the piano!
