Justine Sasanfar discusses how to introduce the fundamental physical mechanisms that allow a student to healthfully and successfully make sound at the keyboard. Justine is a Master's Degree candidate in Piano Pedagogy and Collaborative Piano who played a stunning voice recital last night with works by Beethoven, Wolf, Debussy and Britten.
