Chopin Piano Tutorials

For Radio 3's Chopin Experience the pianist, teacher and broadcaster David Owen Norris has filmed 3 video piano tutorials.

The videos focus on two of Chopin's well-known piano pieces, and are aimed at amateur pianists and those still learning.

From advice on how to play Chopin on modern pianos, to tips on pedalling, fingering, rhythm and interpretation, they offer valuable insights into playing Chopin's music.
