The Art of Bravura for Small Hands is designed so that young piano students who cannot yet span an octave will be able to develop virtuoso techniques and excellent geography of the keyboard even in the early stages of musical tuition. When pianist and composer Michael Harvey first started composing for smaller hands, he found it enhanced his creativity, producing interesting and unexpected harmonic and melodic patterns. However, these pieces should not be seen as limited only to pianists with small hands.
For those who are enthusiastic amateurs, students with small or regular-size hands, start your quest today to become a virtuoso within a year by learning advanced techniques! For those of you who are adults with small hands, why not try repertoire especially written for small hands? For those of you are already professional pianists and would like to add show-stopping pieces to your recital programmes, and for those of you who are teachers looking for conservatoire audition and competition-winning pieces for your students who want to become little super virtuosos without having to wait years, we highly recommend to you ‘The Art of Bravura for Small Hands’!
