2.  Alexander Technique for pianists

For pianists who are experiencing:

and for pianists who wish to improve on:

  • technique, expression, musicality

These sessions will teach Alexander Technique principles as they apply to piano practice and performance.  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 level or genre can benefit from combination lessons, though some prior piano experience is preferable.
