Title: Štúdia o Chopinovej metóde: rola tzv. hudobného obrazu vo formovaní klavírnej techniky – 11 aspektov problému
Author: Stefan Kutrzeba

Abstract: According to the “Sketches for a piano method” written by F. Chopin, one can easily be assured that Chopin’s approach to teaching and playing the piano was strictly determined, not by any mechanically oriented point of view; on the contrary, it strongly depended on his aesthetical tastes and slants. 
This aspect of the matter definitely differentiates entire Chopin’s method from all the teaching systems of his time and even more – from many methods, invented after 1950, from the so-called Taubman approach, G. Sandor’s views, and from any of attempts to apply the Feldenkrais method to the piano teaching and playing.

The role of the so-called Musical Image in piano teaching invented in accordance with Chopin’s approach is being presented from many angles and views:
–    Chopin’s definitions of music;
–    Their influence on the subject;  
–    Observing and evaluating the world of music;
–    Piano playing as the mind & body activity;
–    Fingers vs hearing and memory;
–    Musical Image as the pole star in playing the piano;
–    Forms of acting;
–    Form vs the chain of sounds?
–    The musical time in playing the piano;
–    Physics and empathy;
–    Piano teaching and socialization.
The rules proposed by Chopin applied in practice will put our teaching in harmony with the ideals proclaimed by the greatest of the greatest Masters in theory and practice of  the general education; Chopin as a teacher evidently belongs to this group.
