Towards Effortless Piano Playing
Friday 20 – Sunday 22 February 2015
Course No. 3125
Solo Study Course
This advanced course focuses on repertoire, technique and yoga for pianists, and is ideal for those preparing for concerts, competitions, diplomas or auditions. If you find yourself suffering from technical problems, piano related injuries or nerves, physical tension could be the source. By developing a more relaxed style of playing, your piano technique will become effortless.
The course is run as a series of masterclasses with plenty of opportunities for discussion and exchange of ideas.
All courses are held at Jackdaws in the village of Great Elm, a small village to the west of Frome in Somerset, roughly a 30 minute drive from Bath. Frome Train station is roughly 2.5 miles from Jackdaws with direct trains from Bristol, Bath, Cardiff and London.
