Max Cooke brings to life the theories of posture, gesture and co-ordination, which lead to ease and beauty in piano playing. Explanations about muscular control, finger action, the role of the arms and sense of touch lead directly to exercises for specific aspects of performance, and these in their turn lead to the application of the skills acquired in actual music examples.
Our collection comprises over 40,000 moving image works, acquired and catalogued between the 1940s and early 2000s. As a result, some items may reflect outdated, offensive and possibly harmful views and opinions. ACMI is working to identify and redress such usages.
