Assuming that the thoughtful student will agree that technique is paramount to the beginner, there is but one more condition to be accepted; the cultivation of a deliberate and tranquil approach toward practice. I cannot overly emphasize that a headlong anxiety to play “pieces” will not be productive; it is harmful from every aspect of good technical development. Only thoughtful, regular, and, yes, joyful daily practice will enable the student to develop mind, muscles, and spirit into a concord of execution and expression.
