About the Event
ABOUT THIS MASTERCLASS:
Playing piano requires a lot of physical work, not only for the hands and arms, but for the feet, abdominals, back and shoulders. This workshop will show you what is required from performer’s body in order to play piano and then will teach you how to relate this to your own body, as we are all different and unique. The rule which works for one, will not necessarily work for another. This is why in this small group GéNIA aims to give attention to each participant so they can learn about themselves as well as observe others.
ABOUT THE SERIES
This course of masterclasses aims to create practical tools for musicians which they will be able to apply to their playing straight away. This, in turn, will not only help to improve rapidly, but most importantly, increase their joy of playing the piano. Professional musicians can also benefit from it, as the masterclasses offer many tools for utilising one’s time and resources. Teachers are the most welcome to join so they can offer these practices in their teaching.
Piano-Yoga® masterclasses offer a non-traditional approach to piano technique, based on holistic disciplines, which GéNIA obtained during her training as a yoga teacher at the Life Center, London. Whilst becoming a qualified BWY (British Wheel of Yoga) teacher. She also has a strong interest in NLP (Neuro Linguistic Programming), pilates, meditation and mindfulness techniques.
The workshops are open to adults and young people over 15. They will be held on the last Wednesday of every month excluding July, August and December. Tickets: £35.
