I am delighted to be giving a talk at the Piano-Yoga London Day held at Schott’s Music on June 29th 2013. The event is run by Piano-Yoga expert and Russian concert pianist GéNIA. GéNIA holds many interesting events and Piano-Yoga classes throughout the year around the country, and you can find out more about her work here. I had the good fortune to attend one of her sessions earlier this year and you can read about my experiences here.
The Piano-Yoga London Day consists of a series of talks and one to one lessons given by GéNIA on Piano-Yoga, Piano-Yoga for Kids combating performance nerves, interspersed with talks by myself and yoga teacher and holistic health coach, Kate Lovell. My talk focuses on my book and everything you need to think about when you start to play the piano (I will also be selling and signing the book too). Kate will be speaking on the subject of how to eat well in order to perform at your best. In the evening there will be a Piano-Yoga concert followed by a party. Daytime events are free and there is a £5.00 charge for the party. Look forward to seeing you there!

For much more information about how to practice piano repertoire, take a look at my two-book piano course, Play it again: PIANO (Schott). Covering a huge array of styles and genres, 49 progressive pieces from approximately Grade 1 – 8 level are featured, with at least two pages of practice tips for every piece. A convenient and beneficial course for students of any age, with or without a teacher, and it can also be used alongside piano examination syllabuses too.
