In our next showcase of events from our Piano Day 2021 Festival, we feature workshops on getting your pieces up to speed, inventing exercises from repertoire you’re working on and an opportunity to perform online and get direct feedback on your playing!
Please see further details for each event below or click here to view the full programme. Click here if you haven’t attended one of our online events before and would like to find out more about how they work.
Technique Workshop – Inventing Exercises from Your Pieces
Saturday 27th March @ 16:30 – 18:00 GMT
Rather than separating the study of technique development from music, in this workshop Graham Fitch explores inventing exercises directly from your pieces. The workshop demonstrates how this works and gives tips and ideas for creating your own exercises for awkward spots and your overall technical development. Click here to book your place.
Getting Your Pieces up to Speed
Sunday 28th March @ 10:00 – 11:30 GMT
One of the most common questions pianists ask is how to get pieces up to the full speed. Many struggle to increase the speed beyond a certain tempo without their playing falling apart and hands and arms seizing up.
In this revised version of our most popular workshop to date, Graham Fitch gives a practical demonstration of practice methods for developing speed while retaining control and coordination. Click here to book your place.
A Chance to Perform & Get Personalised Feedback
Sunday 28th March @ 14:30 – 17:00 GMT
Would you like feedback on a piece you’re working on? Or would you like input on a specific problem you’re having?
Our online performance workshops give you the opportunity to perform a piece of your choice for Graham Fitch and an audience of observers. Graham will then provide each performer with direct feedback and individual tuition. You are welcome to bring new pieces if you need help with them and pieces do not necessarily have to be performance-ready. The emphasis of this session is as much on finding solutions to problems as it is to refining and polishing a performance.
