I don't know if this topic is appropriate in the Music Theory section. My question is: how can we memorize a work? which way is faster?
- Finger reactions through practice
- Learning through listening
- Learning through analysis

Listening helps a lot.

Finger habits are bad and should be avoided as much as possible.

Analysis is good but a pianist's memory should not be based on analysis.

When I was in my first years of piano, I memorized music by practising since I didn't really know how the music sounded. My teacher didn't play for me either.
