Postponed due to Corona Virus

ARTETONAL SCHÜLE FÜR MUSIK, MUNICH, GERMANY, June 8-14 NOW NOVEMEBER 27-29

In 2020 Alan Fraser brings Piano Somatics to Munich for the first time. The institute takes place at the Artetonal Schüle für Musik, and unfortunately, due to space restrictions in Novemeber, will run only 3 days instead of the full 7. There are ample practice facilities on site.

Some less advanced pianists hesitate to attend because they are feel unprepared - but Piano Somatics helps pianists regardless of their level. If you wish to learn, you are welcome. 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!
