The Complete Pianist
with Margaret Fingerhut
Friday 24 – Sunday 26 March 2017
Course No. 3221
Solo Study Course
This course offers the opportunity to explore the many different aspects of interpretation and pianism that go towards making the complete pianist. Bring 2 pieces or movements to work on in this relaxed and informal setting. There will be guidance on matters such as tone production, touch, articulation and phrasing, as well as tips on improving velocity, finger independence and accuracy. The fundamental issue of pedalling, “the soul of the piano”, will be an important part of the course.
All courses are held at Jackdaws in the village of Great Elm, a small village to the west of Frome in Somerset, roughly 30 minutes drive from Bath. Frome Train station is roughly 2.5 miles from Jackdaws with direct trains from Bristol, Bath, Cardiff and London.
