A bit about the author

Born in New York City, François Richard was raised in Paris, France, where he started studying the piano at a young age. He now lives in the United States, where he works as an airline pilot. Prior to working for the airline, he worked as an instructor pilot and, due to his passion of transmitting complicated information in the simplest way, and the success of his students, was awarded the “Gold Seal” by the Federal Aviation Administration.

Helped by the most famous pedagogues and artists, he conducted fifteen years of extensive research on piano memorization and mental practice. Because of the lack of formal training, generally given on this very important subject, he wants to share this precious knowledge with us in a fun and simple way.


This book is marvelous! In a fun and easy to understand way Mr.Richards combines some theory with a very clever aural skills method and then follows with photographically memorizing and practicing the piano music... In over a half a century of performing I hug this book every time I see it and it will develop you to you highest potential.What more can you ask for? It's a MUST have!!!"
– Dr. Robert Balaban from Rockford (IL)
