Rio de Janeiro

Rio de Janeiro postponed until November 2020

FEDERAL UNIVERSITY OF THE STATE OF RIO DE JANEIRO, BRAZIL

Alan Fraser has been invited to present at SIMPOM, the Sixth Biennal Brazilian Symposium of Graduate Studies in Music, to be held in Rio May 19-22. He will also be presenting at the University of Sao Paulo. While in Brazil he will be available for consultations with Brazilian pianists. We are trying to organize an institute but have not yet obtained a firm commitment from the organizers.

In South America our same policy applies. Alan Fraser works with all interested pianists, not only the most advanced:

  • 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!
