daily improvements continue w/ piano fitness. i read about the "freefall" arms in gyorgy sandor's book "on piano playing" earlier this year. i'm still integrating that concept and am amazed at the changes in feeling/listening, although my concept of training is in direct opposition to his insistence that no muscle training is necessary.  every time i practice falling arms, i feel the muscles getting stronger, and awareness is improving my tone. my friend colleen adent is right about this producing a warmer, richer sound. 

i have been enjoying scott joplin this week-the daily song is "the entertainer"
