Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Skyhorse Publishing is proud to revive Playing Piano for Pleasure. With the wonderful writing one would expect from a longtime New Yorker reporter, Piano aficionado Charles Cooke, offers concrete routines for improving your piano performance. A pleasant and constant cheerleader, Cooke asks readers to practice every day, suggesting that they work through just that section time and again until it is perfect. In addition to his own thoughts, Cooke includes material from his interviews with master pianists, artists, and writers. The result is a book that should be cherished for years to come.

Synopsis:

"Playing Piano for Pleasure is a minor classic of self-help . . . published in 1941 in the upbeat style of Dale Carnegie."--Michael Kimmelman, The New York Times
