By the time I was 19 I was ready to give up and burn the piano because of the ever increasing pain to me forearms and mental burden it brought on. All of the master classes I played at to top visiting pianists from around the world could not help, they all said my technique was impressive and that I should loosen the arms more.
More than 23 years have passed and I have made a great living from playing the smokey clubs and bars but there was always that something cursing my playing. Also, playing improvised lines can virtually destroy a coordinated technique if one is not careful.
After studying your lectures especially the in out and forward movement my thumb has almost cured itself overnight. I can not begin to express the elation I felt in fact I shouted the words I love you Edna. You have given me renewed hope and peace of mind…I believe you are the greatest teacher on the planet or the messiah of the 21st century for pianists.
