Piano-Yoga® March Newsletter

March 16th, 2012 — 11:17am

Dear Students, Parents and Members of Piano-Yoga®,

Piano-Yoga® School

GéNIA at the Piano-Yoga® School

I hope that this newsletter finds you all very well.

I wanted to update you personally on our news and, in particular, on the recent merger of GéNIA MUSIC Piano School and Piano-Yoga®. The idea for this merger grew organically, since whilst the GéNIA MUSIC Piano School offers ‘standard’ tuition ranging from one-to-one classical piano lessons to jazz and theory courses, Piano-Yoga® works directly on the hands and body, helps to create the correct mindset and generates feelings of well-being. As a result of this merger, our new ‘Piano-Yoga® School’ now has a wide range of classes available:

‘Standard’ one-to-one tuition
Assessment lessons
Composition
Theory
Improvisation
Playing by ear
Aural training
Sight-reading
Grade preparation
Personalised course
Jazz
Ensemble coaching

We also run a number of courses:

Boot camp for beginners
Boot camp refresher
Three-month course A
Three-month course B 
Course of six lessons

For those of you who are interested in the holistic side of piano education we now run:

Piano + yoga classes at Steinway Hall
Piano + holistic therapy (in partnership with Neal’s Yard-Practitioner, Angela Allen)
And if you are not based in central London, why not try our Skype lessons? These have proved to be very effective with our students.

All our teachers share our philosophy and provide teaching of the highest standard.

If you are not sure which courses are best suited to you, take a look at the categories on our home page. Whether you are an amateur pianist, piano teacher, professional musician, conservatoire student, or you are looking into lessons for your children, we have made suggestions for the courses and products most appropriate for you.

Please see below for some other Piano-Yoga® news, and I look forward to hearing from you and welcoming you into our new community.

Namaste,

More About the Book:

Piano-Yoga® “Transform Your Hands: A complete ten week course of piano exercises”, is a unique series of exercises that will do more for your technique than hours of practising pieces. The muscles of your hands can become much stronger and in turn your finger flexibility should increase. By the end of the first two weeks you may start noticing changes (feel your hand muscles getting stronger), and as the programme continues your span on the keyboard may also extend (increase). Your hands may even feel and seem larger! These exercises can be especially beneficial to people with smaller hands and you may even be able to start playing the pieces that you have always wanted to.

Includes ALL 4 stages:

Preliminary Stage: Foundation Piano-Yoga®;
Stage One: Core Piano-Yoga®;
Stage Two: Yin Piano-Yoga®;
Stage Three: Advanced Piano-Yoga®

Piano-Yoga® Featured in Yogi Times

January 5th, 2012 — 4:17pm

Piano-Yoga® in Yogi Times

Yogi Times has featured Piano-Yoga® in their online news site. The article discusses many aspects of Piano-Yoga, from the physical exercises extolled in the book and expanding into lifestyle choices that can help aid piano practice. Below is a snippet from the article and a link to Yogi Times page.

An Holistic Approach to Piano Learning

Piano-Yoga® is a mutli-dimensional method of playing, performing and teaching piano. This fairly new method, founded by GéNIA, a Russian virtuoso pianist, combines the fundamentals of Russian piano schools with Eastern philosophies, particularly yoga.

Creating an optimal environment which promotes a student’s sense of well-being is GéNIA’s best approach to learning the piano. “When we feel relaxed, think positively and our concentration is at its peak, we can learn more quickly and efficiently,” she explains. In this state, learning can feel like having fun—where studying and mastering something new become an effortless and pleasurable experience.
