Concord, February 6-7


The Concord IV Alan Fraser Piano Institute (June 2016) will be supplemented by a preliminary mid-winter 2-day event. NHMTA members are invited to an introductory seminar on applying Feldenkrais Method to instrumental, vocal and piano performance to be held February 6-7 2016. Alan Fraser will also be offering private piano and Feldenkrais lessons this weekend.

All sessions will take place at the Concord Community Music School (CCMS), one of the nation's most vibrant and thriving music communities.

The two fine Steinway pianos (both pre-war New York B's) in the CCMS concert hall assure the highest possible level of artistic work in these lessons. Excellent practice facilities with mostly Steinway midsize grand pianos will be available.

Come for a lesson this February to refresh your previous Institute experience or to get a taste of what awaits you at your first Institute this coming summer.

To register for the seminar or book a private session, please contact Kathryn Southworth Lundahl or call her at (603) 496-5266.



Travelling directions to Concord Community Music School

The nearest airport is Manchester-Boston Regional Airport in Manchester, NH. There is a slightly pricey airport shuttle to Concord. The airport website also has a huge list of transportation services - we have not called them all to see which one is most economical!

There is also a convenient bus service from Boston's Logan Airport, which may be even more convenient than the shuttle from Manchester.
