In this brand-new, five-video series, GéNIA covers the essentials of piano playing, with each video dedicated to a certain technique. GéNIA discusses several topics, from creating a beautiful legato to playing even scales. She also gives advice on executing trills and other ornaments as well as perfecting octaves.
GéNIA believes that it is critical to teach proper technique from the very beginning and that anatomical alignment can improve our playing immensely. This philosophy inspired her to film this mini-series.
In addition to covering physical technique, GéNIA filmed two videos focused on a more holistic approach to music making. In ‘Practice Imitates Life,’ GéNIA describes how we can change our playing by tuning inwards. In another video, GéNIA gives her ‘TCP Magic Formula’ to enable you to perform at your highest level.

If you are interested in taking your playing to the next level, this video tutorial will help you achieve your goals. According to Professor Douglas Finch, Professor of Piano and Composition at Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance in London,"GéNIA is one of the most exciting, dynamic and daring pianists I've met in recent years. Her approach to the development of piano technique and personal development are both highly effective and original, combining the Russian tradition with a modern holistic musical outlook. I recommend the Piano-Yoga® course ’Transform Your Practice: A Complete 11 Stage Guide’ most highly."
