How to Create Bright Sound on the Piano by Changing the Hand Positions


The lesson exhibits a wonderful example of how to reach a bright piano sound by just changing the hand positions from flat to rounded. You can also learn more about the importance of the co-operation between two different movements of the left and right hands and their respective effect on the right upper arm-guided expression of belcanto sound and the balanced dynamic accompaniment of the bass line.
