Holistic Day for Pianists on Sunday 16 July at Schott Music, London

79312dd4-0343-4112-954c-5947a48fb842

 

 

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.
