Why do lawyers want to learn to play the piano? At first sight jurisprudence, with its exhaustive logic, rules and standard tasks, is poles apart from the sensual world of music, but in reality it just seems so. Although this book will be of particular interest to lawyers it also will have a much wider appeal to anyone who is dedicated to learning the piano from beginners to professionals. By reading this book, you will learn how and why training in music develops logical, abstract and creative thinking, and contributes to success in every sphere of human life.
I wrote this book at my home in Oxfordshire, England
My students – I had to constantly answer their questions and it gave me the idea if integrating everything into a book
It took more than a year, which was much longer than I thought because I wrote the book in Russian and had it translated into English
I teach the piano, which this is my main occuoation . I spend much of my free time with my 10 year old son I also spend a lot of time exploring the cause and effect of human behaviour. physiology and psychology
One of my favourites is by Oliver Burkeman. “The Antidote : Happiness for people who can’t stand Positive Thinking”
To me, writing is all about research and expressing myself . I love to write about my favourite subjects — experiences , new scientific discoveries and stories about my life, expressing emotions and thoughts to illustrate who I really am.
Liana was born and raised in Russia in the former Soviet Union where she studied music and psychology. She moved to the UK in 1999 and currently lives and works in Oxfordshire. Her passion is research into how learning to play the piano can improve the function of the brain and enhance the memory. As a direct result of her researches she has developed her own technique to teach students to play the piano concentrating on using the right side of the brain which is associated with people who tend to be creative and artistic. She has also developed a system of “musical maths” to improve sight-reading and memory. Her students cover a wide spectrum from children to retirees ranging from beginners to professionals. When not teaching she enjoys spending as much time as possible with her young son, including, paradoxically, teaching him to play the piano!
