Geneva, Nov. 23-28 2022

CONSERVATOIRE POPULAIRE DE MUSIQUE, GENEVA, SWITZERLAND

Alan Fraser visits Geneva a few times each year to teach privately at the Conservatoire Populaire de Musique à Genève. These visits are for private lessons only with no Awareness Through Movement lessons or lectures. Fraser is fluent in both English and French, and uses the participant's native tongue wherever possible.

Fraser works with pianists to improve the ease and fluency with which they can orchestrate their sound, through subtle adjusments both to overall body posture and to hand posture that are recorded in the body's neuromotor representation. He can also work with other instrumentalists and vocalists.


OPEN TO ALL INTERESTED PIANISTS & MUSICAL PERFORMERS

Are you hesitant to attend? Not well-enough prepared? Don't worry; Alan welcomes all, no matter what the state of your program. Working on a new piece can help you avoid making technical errors in the learning process. Thus he wlecomes 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 also helps instrumentalists and vocalists, transforming their sound by making minute postural adjustments that release hidden physical blocks. If you have a friend or colleague with a specific performing issue, why not invite them to come along.
