Melanie Spanswick and GéNIA explore physical flexibility & relaxation techniques, plus the mental mindfulness required for memorisation and sight-reading
with Russian-born pianist, teacher, composer and founder of Piano-Yoga® GéNIA and pianist, educator, composer, author and adjudicator Melanie Spanswick
Melanie (left) and GéNIA (right) met in 2012, and immediately recognised their shared beliefs; helping piano students to realise their true potential by offering holistic technical and musical guidance, and thereby encouraging a different approach to piano playing. Subsequent workshops and projects have followed, and now we are delighted to present a complete holistic piano day which will explore several important elements; incorporating the physical flexibility and relaxation techniques employed in Piano-Yoga® with the mental mindfulness required in memorisation and sight-reading.
Holistic Day for Pianists is an exciting all-day event for amateur pianists, music students, piano teachers and young musicians from the age of 13, to be held at Schott Music in London on Sunday 16th July 2017.
Melanie Spanswick is a regular contributor to Pianist magazine. She writes our Beginner level 'How to Play' articles. Watch her here interviewing Pianist editor Erica Worth:
