Hello Fellow Instrumentalist !

Welcome to my web site !

As a career Instrumental teacher of students from age 6 through adult,
High School to College level and beyond, I want to share
with you some of my observations and findings about
improving one's physical skills and technique on almost
any instrument.

Here is a little of my philosophy that led me to develop
"The Orósz Technique" during my over 30 years as a music
teacher.

My finger training program course is specifically designed to achieve
rapid, accurate and controlled finger technique. 
Not the more common and
impetuous kind that is uneven and irregular with your fingers
flailing all over the place but rather the smooth, professional,
fast fingering that is light in touch, evenly distributed and perfectly
"In Sync".  

I'm after a technique that doesn't have, what I call, "Blurbs".  You
know, those unwanted "in between" notes that occur by accident
when one finger is placed slightly before another finger that is
supposed to place at the same time.  We've all experience them
but most of the time we are much too forgiving of ourselves so
we choose to ignore them thinking that they will go away on their
own.

They Never Do !

We may not notice them after a while but you can bet that the
listener is hearing those annoying extras that don't belong in that
beautiful melody line.

We ALL want to play our scales in 16th notes at MM quarter note = 120
just to be able to perform some of the most beautiful music out there.

After all, the speed has to fit the melody line.

What about inching up the metronome up to 132 or 144 for the
more difficult pieces ?  And what about going even faster to
achieve virtuosic status at MM quarter note = 160 ?

You simply will never do it without knowing "your" finger skills
and problem intervals on your instrument plus a method of
correcting all of the flaws.

MagicMusicianFingers is my answer to creating a method and if
followed diligently, WILL enable you to achieve your goals.

By working on your finger control "Away From Your Instrument",
you will allow your brain to Fully concentrate on the task at hand.

All your brain's thinking goes to fingers and not to note reading plus
rhythm plus articulation plus musical style and of course,
expression and interpretation.

This concentrated effort really moves your technique up Notch
after Notch after Notch !  My method works to burn a strong
pathway from your brain to your fingers, gives the fingers
strength, total independence, lightness of touch and speeds you
never thought you could achieve.

You'll see the results daily as you practice fingers alone for only,
but at least, 20 minutes and then pick up an Etude and sightread
on your instrument.

Here is where you will be blown away !

You no longer will have to think about your fingers.  Now you
will be able to put your full concentration into improving your
sight reading abilities and expressing yourself through your
favorite repertoire.

Your brain and fingers will have fused a strong pathway so that
little or no concentration has to be directed their way.

Total freedom to explore just how good you can perform
is now yours to enjoy !

My method opens the doors, unties the hands ( or better yet,
your fingers ) so that you can shine .

You'll have more fun and get more enjoyment, whether you are
practicing or performing.

Good Luck !

Sincerely,

~ Jules
