Is great for Jazz Piano too?
Adult jazz piano students taught Russian Piano Technique (RPT) outperform their peers.
Most jazz piano teachers emphasize jazz voicing & licks but omit technical skill and expression.
Adult piano students literally pay the price making playing difficult, less fluid & unrewarding.
Chord piano teachers place even less emphasis on technique. Students waste money mimicking chords.
Jazz piano teacher Alex Bohrer utilizes Russian technique because of its use of powerful ergonomic principles.
This helps his students to perform with ease.
Alex's students learn the importance of weighted playing, velocity, gravity, inertia & joint flexibility.
Students immediately discover performance improvement & stress reduction.
It also helps adult piano students overcome technical incompetency.
Adult piano students learn how to play with fluidity while maintaining a fluid playing style.
This is a hallmark of a great player.
Russian piano technique is about learning how to use your hands correctly & efficiently.
A piano player's hands are a reflection of his or her mind.
Hard, rude thinking must manifest itself in offensive, physical motions & sounds on piano.
Russian Piano Technique is the best option for any adult piano student aspiring to develop a pro sound or become professional.
It emphasizes the concept that the fingers and hands are separate elements.
This helps the student learn how to press notes with the correct fingers.
This is a great way to start for beginning adult pianists.
It requires patience and perseverance to learn to properly use these techniques.
The more you practice Russian piano technique, the more you'll enjoy playing the piano.

There are so many advantages to RPT which is why it has been used by some of the greatest musicians of all time.
RPT always makes a lasting impression on your audience.
Alex studied RPT with Madame Chaloff privately while also attending Berklee College of Music as a Jazz Piano Performance major.
He has since adapted Russian Piano Technique to benefit all levels.
Unlike modern styles, RPT teaches piano students to develop superior technical skills & musical knowledge.
Granted although RPT is extremely effective, it is not practical for every performance situation.
For example a keyboard player in a high-energy funk band would find little use for it.
In fact, it is considered unpractical by most "Non-classical" chord based teachers advertising across FaceBook and YouTube.
This is because RPT requires a lot of practice & commitment.
A piano teacher can't pitch magical results overnight when it comes to technique.
RPT is simply too honest to be able to fake it until you make it.
RPT + jazz theory + practice meditation + piano phraseology is the best path to nurturing love for learning.
So what exactly is Russian piano technique?
RPT is characterized by a natural wrist movement.
The RPT is based on the idea that the hand naturally rotates, which means it does not have to be held in one position.
This way, the hand can move as smoothly as the arm does.
If the arm is in the right place, the hands can relax and the arms won't be overworked.
This technique was developed in the Soviet era, when government funding for music conservatories helped push pianists to perform at peak levels.
In the beginning, Russian piano pedagogues stressed the importance of perfect technique to achieve high performance.
The result was a style which is incredibly powerful, projected, accurate, and technically precise.
RPT offers many benefits to both beginners and seasoned players.
For instance, high-finger technique is a great way to develop a richer sound, as well as a better understanding of the rhythms.
RPT is especially helpful for beginners as it provides skills needed to become more expressive.
