seeking "Technique at All Levels" by Liva : LUSENET : Everything About Teaching and Learning the Piano : One Thread

I have an abridged version of "Technique at All Levels" by Anne Vanko Liva, and am seeking the full version. Anyone out there have one or know where I can obtain one? My version is unpublished--it was just typed out by the author, and I don't know if the full version was ever published.

I do not believe that Anne Liva ever had a book published. I also have a type written sheet about technic that I found among some old music books that someone gave me. Care to exchange and see if we have the same thing?

Anne was my great aunt . . . my grandfather, her oldest brother, is the only remaining sibling . . . I will see if he can help!

Anne Vanko Liva was a remarkable woman, an outstanding teacher and superbly supportive of her young group of students.

I would be interested in developing a website about her and her "Techniques" manual could be published online if the family approves.

When I was conducting in N.E. PA, she provided (at her expense) a better piano for the soloist at one of my concerts. She cared! You might consider contacting some of her former students who are now teachers - try Andrea Bogusko.

Anne was a dear friend who always insisted on feeding me even when I showed up late at night with no warning. The door was always open and lots of folks were always there in the kitchen while she prepared her late meals.

Let me know if you are interested.
