Hamm

STUDIO MAUCK, HAMM, WESTPHALIA, GERMANY

Due to the current unpredictable pandemic situation, we are not scheduling institutes at the moment. Alan Fraser generally teaches in Hamm a couple of times a year, once in the spring and once in the late fall. Please register for our newsletter to receive updates on scheduling as they arise.

This is a small-scale Institute with no lecture and no Awareness Through Movement lessons. Those who register for a lesson may observe the other lessons that day for a small additional fee to be paid on site.

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 Fraser 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!
