When practicing Piano, do you feel frustrated, and stuck, like you´re never going to progress? The body and mind aren´t working in unison, and you feel the physical strain after practice? This can affect both your musical and personal life, especially when you have to turn down paid performance work, because you don´t feel ready, or have an injury, that prevents you from performing to your full potential.
I understand having experienced pain in the neck, and arms, when I tried to learn really difficult Piano pieces by Liszt, Rachmaninov, that I needed to change something in my technique,
This something was the way I used my whole body to play Piano, and learning how to feel tension in different places in the body.
Playing the Piano requires much more than just the fingers, as I´m sure you know, and it´s my pleasure to help you begin your journey of learning how use the natural body strength we all have, to connect to the keys, and play Piano, without feeling sore, and tired in the arms, wrists, and neck afterwards.
We all as Pianists, have endurance for playing longer, and more naturally, that just needs gentle step by step work, that this course will provide.
After going through the course, and applying the content, you´ll be able to easily detect tension you have in the body, which restricts you using your full potential of body weight in Piano technique.
There are 3 modules in this course:
1. Before Piano practice: Warm up the body, and iron out tensions that you usually take into your practice, and balance the use of muscles used to play any Piano piece.
2. During Practice: While working on your pieces, start to notice habits before they become natural, and let go of the tension. Also learn how to alter current habits, causing stress, and fatigue in your body, and restrict physical freedom, in your technique. This module also contains, the 1 Good habit, to break bad habits.
3. Performances: Leading up to your next concert/gig, learn how to prepare physically, alongside your musical work, so that you don´t experience strain, and fatigue during the performance.
How will I know if I´m doing the techniques correctly?
You won´t be left alone to do the work, as there is an exclusive Facebook group, for Pianists who enroll in the course, so you will be able to ask questions, for the instructor, Daniel Roberts to see, and help you with.
What level of playing experience do I need to take this course?
Daniel recommends that you have at least an intermediate level of Piano ability.
If you are a Piano teacher, you may consider getting a few of your younger students to pay, splitting the cost towards a purchase of the course, so that you can run through the material with them, to help develop awareness of good habits at an early stage in their Piano life.
How long are the videos online?
All the time. You can study at your own pace, and take your time to improve your habits. Daniel is available in the course comment area, and the Facebook group.
