The pandemic is not entirely over, but borders are opening up and restrictions are being eased, so Alan has decided to teach for three days privately in Geneva September 10-12.
He will also teach in Basel September 13-14.
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 Feldenkrais lessons or lectures. The same applies for the two lesson days in Basel. Fraser is fluent in both English and French, and uses the participant's native tongue wherever possible.
Many relatively inexperienced pianists hesitate to have a lesson with Alan, feeling they are not good enough or not well-enough prepared. However, Alan insists that we are all here to learn and this approach can help all of us, no matter whether our program is well-prepared or in a shambles. Thus Alan is happy to work with all interested pianists:
There is no limit to improvement!
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.
The Conservatoire is located at
Rue François-D’Ivernois 7
Some lessons will be held at the "satellite conservatoire" at
Chemin des Crêts-de-Champel 40
The Basel lessons will be held in a private studio - address to be announced.
