At the beginning of Spring what is better than a professional induction/assessment tutorial for your piano playing?

A fresh inspiration is awaiting you at Piano-Yoga®, where we pride ourselves in having a different holistic approach to piano learning; where your lifestyle, energy levels, body, mind, temperament are all considered and worked with individually.

If you are new to the Piano-Yoga approach and are intrigued to learn more, the induction tutorial will give you a hands-on insight to our method. You will also find out how to enhance your overall experience of piano practice – no matter the level- and all the little details in your mind, body and spirit that may have gone unnoticed before. These can make a considerable difference to your awareness and enjoyment level.

Piano-Yoga® is offering a spring discount until the end of April. Please see the details of the Assessment Lessons and listen to GéNIA’s interview here.

We are conveniently located near Liberty’s in W1 for your after-work or lunchtime Piano-Yoga® induction tutorial.

genaWith the spring, there is always a ‘new you’! If you are tired from winter and cold dark nights, you are most likely feeling creative and would like to start playing something new and exciting on the piano! Many beginners and intermediate players have enthusiasm, but often lack the knowledge of the repertoire that would allow them to choose their pieces.

Here is a selection of pieces that will most likely elevate your mood and, at the same time, will be great for developing your piano technique

 

Mozart Piano Sonata in C Major K545 Mov 1

 

Beethoven 6 Variations in G Major WoO 70 on “Nel cor piu non mi sento’

 

Scaralatti Piano Sonata in C Major K159

This is just a little blog entry from me about the Holistic Day, that I led with renowned educator, blogger and teacher Melanie Spanswick recently in London. I wanted to share with you how wonderful it was to spend the whole day concentrating on Piano-Yoga® and other aspects of piano playing and technique. Melanie’s talks were inspiring; she offered wonderful tips on memorisation and sight-reading, making students practise various things there and then.

I offered a slightly different approach, concentrating on how to obtain the best energy, so you can get the best our of your practice and/or a performance, especially when you were tired or, opposite, too excited to concentrate. Through the various exercises and talks about different energy states, we spent a wonderful afternoon exploring. I concluded my part of the day by going through the details of each stage of my book ‘Piano-Yoga® Transform Your Hands’: 10 Week Course of Piano Exercises.

We had a wonderful variety of students, which included amateur pianists, piano teachers and professional music students.

The atmosphere of Jaque Samuel Pianos, was equally inspiring; we were surrounded by at least 100 pianos and had 4 Fazioli grand pianos in our studio, where we taught.

The students were very receptive and eager and after the day we received wonderful comments such as ‘A most inspiring duette with many useful tips’ from Edi and ‘One of the most interesting days in my life. Thank you so much!’ from Charles.

We look forward to bringing you more events and if you’d like to invite us to come to your area with the Holistic Day Programme please do not hesitate to get in touch!

With love,

GéNIA
