Piano-Yoga® Club Online: The fundamentals of piano articulation
Time & Location
About the Event
Piano articulation forms a substantial part of piano technique. From staccato to legato, from portamento to playing various types of mordents and chords, this event will be very much 'hands on' with GéNIA demonstrating on the piano the main principles of piano articulation and explaining to participants various ways of producing them.
Music articulation could be compared to pronunciation in our speech. We all know that this can sometimes lead to difficulties, especially when learning a foreign language, as the way we pronounce some words could be misleading, just because certain ways of pronunciation are not available to us and we fail to recreate the sound we want. The same applies to music! If we cannot produce the desired expression, our performance could be misunderstood, making us feel uncomfortable with our own playing.
Join GéNIA for this interactive session, where you can ask her any questions relating to piano articulation and to challenges which you are currently facing when practising!
The aim of our group is to help musicians to improve their playing through providing a creative environment and discussing all the aspects of piano playing, whilst keeping the atmosphere of the event friendly and interactive.
Following discussions with our regular participants, we are introducing a new policy:
When you join the Piano-Yoga® Club Online you will be invited to introduce yourself, and say hello, as well as to enable your video camera and microphone. We understand that it may not be possible for you to keep the camera on for a long time (for example, due to a weak connection issues), however you will be asked to enable the camera at the beginning of the event when you join. If you unable to do so, we regret that we won't be able to have you and therefore have the right to exclude you from the event with immediate effect. We are introducing these measures purely because we aim to provide a friendly environment for our club members, where they can communicate freely and discuss music and creativity. The disabled video camera produces a 'being watched' effect, and therefore makes other people uncomfortable, as we do not know the person behind the screen. We hope that you understand this and accept this policy in good sprit.
Please log in in to the event at least 5 minutes before the beginning, in case there are any technical difficulties. The virtual doors will be open from 6:15pm and you are welcome to join GéNIA from that time! If you have any questions please do not hesitate to get in touch via firstname.lastname@example.org!
We are looking forward to seeing you at the event!
