Switzerland

BASEL MARCH 14; ZURICH MARCH 14-15; GENEVA MARCH 16-17

Alan Fraser conducts several Swiss residencies a year. He works with pianists to improve the ease and fluency with which they can orchestrate their sound, with violinists, improving their sound and dexterity, both in the bow arm and fingering arm, through subtle adjusments to posture that are recorded in the body's neuromotor representation, and with other instrumentalists and vocalists.

Fraser's residencies have no lectures or group Awareness Through Movement lessons, just private work at one's instrument, or pure Feldenkrais Functional Integration lessons. Fraser is fluent in English, French and Serbian, and uses the participant's native tongue wherever possible.


OPEN TO ALL INTERESTED PIANISTS & MUSICAL PERFORMERS

Are you hesitant to take a lesson? Not well-enough prepared? Don't worry; Alan will teach you, no matter what the state of your program. Working on a new piece with Alan can help you avoid the technical errors we sometimes make during the learning process. Thus he really does work with all interested pianists, vocalists and instrumentalists:

  • students who wish to improve their sound and agility
  • adult amateurs who wish to feel more in command of the instrument
  • teachers who want new ways of teaching technique to their students
  • professionals who wish to hone their skills to the highest possible level.

There is no limit to improvement!


INSTRUMENTALISTS & VOCALISTS ALSO WELCOME

Alan's Feldenkrais-informed approach to performance helps instrumentalists and vocalists transform their sound, making minute postural adjustments that release hidden physical blocks. If you have a friend or colleague with a specific performance issue, why not invite them to take a lesson.
