All Thumbs is the third of Alan Fraser's books on piano technique, following The Craft of Piano Playing and Honing the Pianistic Self-Image. Never before has the thumb, one of the most misunderstood and neglected parts of the pianist's hand, received such a complete makeover. Fraser fleshes out its role and provides a brilliant series of exercises to bring its full potential to bear on your piano technique.
Fraser shows how empowering the thumb leads to a similar empowerment of all the fingers, the hand, and the entire piano playing mechanism. He also addresses arm weight technique in more detail than ever before, with a discriminating evaluation of its potential pitfalls as well as a paean to the glories of its best incarnations.
