The studio also welcomes jazz pianists from intermediate to advanced levels, playing for school, university, professionally or just for fun.

Alexander Technique for pianists

Alexander Technique teaches ease and efficiency.  You learns skills to address back pain, neck pain, or other things which interfere with comfort and performance.  Alexander Technique actively helps you while you are sitting, walking, playing, working or doing anything that involves posture or movement! 

This is especially relevant to pianists who are experiencing:

  • pain in hands, wrist, shoulder, neck or back,

  • RSI, carpal tunnel, overuse injury

  • performance anxiety

  • tension

and for pianists who wish to improve on:

  • technique, expression, musicality

  • confidence

  • comfort, ease or endurance at the piano

Drawing on experience as a professional pianist and teacher, Jeremy is able to present musicality and piano technique in a way which coordinates the complete performance.

Principles of Taubman Technique are also referred to as complementary to integrated training. Students of any musical background or genre can benefit from Alexander Technqiue.
