These are the documents that I have used to introduce classical music to my piano students.  No note is presented without its corresponding proper fundamental technique (fingering).  In other words, there is no such thing as a note separate from its hand position and fingering.    

The hand position notation is used to better communicate what exactly is being demanded of the student. Students’ repertoire is no longer limited by their music staff reading ability.  Nor do they suffer from their own painful inability to solve technical issues.  This approach restores “playing music on the piano” to primacy and supports “helping a student play music on the piano” as the central activity of the piano lesson.  

Weak students are able to play real (not simplified) music and not feel penalized.  Strong students complete their preparation even more efficiently.  In all cases, spending less time on fingering means more time for higher levels of musicianship:  coordination, pedaling, physical technique, control, tone, dynamics, tempo, rhythm, articulation, phrasing, expression, emotion, drama, compositional analysis, and historical context.

Good luck!
Scott Camp    

    Scott Camp studied jazz piano, improvisation, composition, and theory at the University of Tennessee (BA), New England Conservatory of Music (BM, MM), and the University of Iowa (doctoral studies in theory/composition).  Scott was a board member and past president of the Asheville Area Piano Forum, where he taught piano lessons and also served as pianist/choir director.  Scott's students' piano recital performances, as well as his own performances, are well documented on YouTube, in addition to two full length albums with wife Patsy Brison, RAIN DOWN LOVE (2013) and FOR A BETTER WORLD (2016) available on iTunes.

While teaching piano in the Asheville area from 2003-2015, Scott created the V (gap) system of notating expanded hand positions through which all piano music can be presented and learned through hand positions and finger numbers.

    I’ve always wanted to be able to play this. The music is such that it makes it easy to understand to Assist with learning how to play. I wouldn’t say I’ve got it yet but it’s a working progress.
