Musical expression is enriched by the fusion of the imagination with the physical use of the body. This research study will focus on piano performance of the teaching method of Hans Leygraf, in which control of the body, finger movements and touch are important. The fundamental premise of this method is to relax the body and understand how to separately use different parts of the body such as the upper arm, elbow, lower arm, wrist, and fingertips. The study will focus on the five touches: basic keystroke, grip touch, legato technique, crisp touch, and chords, and will use existing works to explore specific ways of teaching these techniques. The basic keystrokes will be taught using Invention by Bach. This touch uses the third joint, without the involvement of the arm or wrist, to create a clear sound. Grip touch, using the fingertips (greifen in German), will be taught using Invention No. 4 by Bach. This touch uses the second joint, without the arm or wrist, to create a clear sound. The legato technique is a development of this touch. The sound is created by adding arm and wrist movements. This will be taught using Prelude, Op. 28, No. 4 by Frederic Chopin. For a crisp touch, it is necessary to keep the entire fingers firm, concentrating on the fingertips. and controlling the fulcrum of the third joint, wrist, and elbow, depending on the tone you want to create. This will be taught using Invention No. 8 by Bach. Finally, how to play chords: using the shoulder as a fulcrum, the entire upper arm, elbow, and lower arm are employed to change the dynamics. This will be taught using Prelude, No. 20 by Chopin. The result of this method is a combination of precise body movements and touch, which allows for more tonal variation within expressive music. This study will demonstrate how the method of Hans Leygraf can be beneficially used in teaching in the future.
