We held two successful NEW YORK CITY PIANO INSTITUTES led by ALAN FRASER, Canadian performing artist, pedagogue, scholar, author of six books on piano technique, and certified Feldenkrais practitioner, before the pandemic brought everything to a standstill. Held in December 2019 and January 2020, they were well attended and a roaring success - hopefully when things return to normal we will be able to resume these valuable pedagogical meetings. In the meantime there is the Pianimals Online Institute in which Alan teaches pianists from all over the globe how to bring a new dimension to their technique and musicianship, and how to help their students do the same.
Drawing on 45 years' experience and a deep understanding of physiology, Professor Fraser helps develop a better relationship between hand and keyboard, between body and sound. Enhancing rather than changing your current technique, he improves your understanding of piano playing to achieve maximum results. Professor Fraser will also address prevention and treatment of repetitive stress syndrome, tendonitis and other piano-related injuries
Daily format includes: group lecture, group Feldenkrais class, and individual sessions for all active participants
