Audrey Dumont has studied with Alan Fraser since 2014 and began hosting the institute in 2018. This September marks the fourth Dijon Alan Fraser Piano Institute. Practice facilities will be available at a neighbouring studio, where the Feldenkrais lessons will also take place.
Fraser is fluent in both English and French, and uses the participant's native tongue wherever possible.
Many relatively inexperienced pianists hesitate to attend an institute, feeling they are not good enough or not well-enough prepared. However, we are all here to learn, and this approach can help all of us, no matter how well-prepared or ill-prepared our program. Thus the Institute really is OPEN TO ALL INTERESTED PIANISTS:
This sample schedule may be modified to suit the needs of the group.
