Wow, impressive credentials and great video.

I like to play boogie woogie and blues, and especially ragtime, but my left hand, playing the octaves, gets stiff after a few rounds.

My last serious piece was Beethoven's Appassionata. I loved this masterpiece and I memorized all three movements, but I was not able to play all passages at proper speed, because of improper fingering. You know, for example, when you should put the thumb under your palm to play the next note in a passage, so you won't run out of fingers finishing a fast passage and have to use the last finger twice, to hit the last two notes.

Our old high school gym/sports teacher had a favorite saying - "It's not 'practice makes perfect'...it's 'practice makes permanent'". His advice was always to learn something correctly from the start. If you learn a technique wrong - in sports, music or anything else - it stays with you, and is difficult to undo.

I never learned proper piano fingering, I always was using easy or convenient fingering, and to render a classic from Beethoven or another of the masters, you need to play it with correct fingering.

I hope you train your charges to not try shortcuts, to always utilize proper fingering! :)
