I was fortunate enough to attend and participate in several of Peter Feuchtwanger's master classes in Germany last summer. I know several fine German performing pedagogues in addition to an Englishman who employ Mr. Feuchtwanger's methods in their teaching, but nobody in the USA.

I would be interested in exchanging ideas, experiences, etc with teachers in the USA who are using his methods. In many ways they are quite revolutionary, and at least for me, they have been transformative in the most positive way.

Looking forward to interacting with you.

I am completely unfamiliar with his methods. Is there a site or text where they are described?

Thanks for your interest. Here are some links to get you started. If you haven't read Cathcart's book and you love the piano, you owe it to yourself to get a copy. His description of one of Peter Feuchtwanger's master classes is congruent in many ways with my own. And it is true, as Peter told me, that the (he cultivates an) atmosphere in the classes which is nurturing and non-competitive. I've never been around so many nice, helpful, excellent players in one place, but I digress. Feel free to PM me if you want to discuss things in greater depth than makes sense here.

I haven't the time to read closely at the moment. (My students will arrive, and we are in the midst of contest and exam season.) This looks extremely interesting, however, and I know I will return to the sites. Thank you! After I read them, I may have questions for you.
