Voicing and Sound Control at the Piano


Voicing at the piano means the ability to play one note or notes louder than others. (There are other uses of the term, by the way.)

Developing voicing and sound control at the piano is one of the clearest signs of an accomplished pianist, but also one of the most difficult subjects to master and practice.

In this video, I discuss three broad concepts relating to learning to voicing:

  • The importance of developing a “sound image”.
  • Using a positive feedback loop.
  • Practicing sound control slowly in single “instants” in time.

If you are working (or struggling?) with developing more control of your sound at the piano, you might find this video helpful.
