I was taught Simandl 40 years ago, and all my teachers the past 6 years use Simandl. But yesterday, Michael Moore gave me an eye popping demonstration of the Streicher method. There's no doubt in my mind it's one key to his greatness. In addition, he's been injury free since changing. When he was with Marian McPartland, he had gone 3 months with no feeling in his fingers. As demonstrated close-up, Streicher makes eminent good sense. However, to anyone schooled in Simandl, learning it is a nightmare. I say it can't be done without a teacher. Michael agrees, and now that he's with Brubeck he has no time for teaching. My next lesson is almost 2 months from now. Does anyone know teachers of Streicher in northern NJ or NYC? And thanks, but no, thanks, I will not try to learn from a video.
