DORTMUND

Due to the current unpredictable pandemic situation, we are not scheduling institutes at the moment. Please register for our newsletter to receive updates on scheduling as they arise.

Alan visits the Ruhr valley a couple of times a year, and sometimes includes Dortmund on the itinerary - generally giving private lessons, not an institute proper - No ATMs and no lectures. Locations to be determined. He teaches in English or French; German translation may be available on request. Multiple lessons on the same day are possible.

OPEN TO ALL INTERESTED PIANISTS

Many relatively inexperienced pianists hesitate to attend an institute, 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 the Institute really is open to all interested pianists:

  • students who wish to improve their sound and agility
  • 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!
