The Complete Pianist
Thursday 7 – Sunday 10 May 2015 Three Day Course
Course No. 3134
Solo Study Course
This longer course offers the opportunity to explore the many different aspects of interpretation and pianism that go towards making the complete pianist.
Margaret will be revealing her tricks of the trade in this intimate setting with time for free ranging discussions about anything and everything piano.
Bring 2 pieces or movements to unravel in this relaxed and informal setting. Margaret’s guidance on touch, tone production, articulation and phrasing is as sought after as her tips for velocity, finger independence and accuracy. For her, the “soul of the piano” is the fundamental issue of pedalling, and it will be an important topic on this course.
