About the Event
We are delighted to continue running Piano-Yoga® Club Online! Described as ‘Something radical’ and ‘The first entirely new technique to emerge in the last 50 years’ by Yoga & Health Magazine, the Club will give an opportunity to learn in-depth about the Piano-Yoga® method and get advice directly from its creator, ‘an outstanding musician’ (The Times), concert pianist and composer, GéNIA. Taking place in a virtual environment, the Club will run every second Friday in June 2020, starting at 6.30 pm – 7.45pm, with further dates to announed later. We are inviting up to 15 members to join us at a time, as GéNIA would like to to be able to give proper attention to every single participant.
The activity of the Club will involve practical exercises for pianists and a short presentation from GéNIA (please see schedule below), followed by a Q & A session. Participants will be able to discover specific details about piano technique, learn strategies for efficient practice, get tips on dealing with stage fright and how to keep relaxed during their practice, amongst other things.
9 June 2020: Playing the music of J.S. Bach

GéNIA will be sharing her views on some recommended techniques for performing works by these composers, as well as her personal approach to mastering their compositions.
