First published in 1920, this book contains fantastic guide to teaching piano playing for music teachers, written by Tobias Matthay. Tobias Augustus Matthay (1858 – 1945) was an English pianist, composer, and teacher. He was taught composition while at the Royal Academy of Music by Arthur Sullivan and Sir William Sterndale Bennett, and he was instructed in the piano by William Dorrell and Walter Macfarren. Contents include: “Method in its Good and Its Bad Sense”, “Fad-Methods to be Avoided”, “Method in its Helpful Sense”, “Cramming v. Teaching”, “Method v. Teaching Devices”, “Example of Method in Teaching, Fore-am Rotation”, “Repetition of Formulae Useless, Knowledge of Facts Essential”, etc. This timeless handbook will be of considerable utility to piano teachers and students alike, and it would make for a worthy addition to allied collections. Other notable works by this author include: “The Act Of Touch In All Its Diversity” (1903), “The First Principles of Pianoforte Playing (1905)” and “Relaxation Studies” (1908). Many vintage books such as this are increasingly scarce and expensive. It is with this in mind that we are republishing this volume now in an affordable, modern, high-quality edition complete with a specially-commissioned new biography of the author.
