Piano-Yoga Masterclasses
On the 3rd and 4th September GéNIA will be hosting Piano-Yoga® masterclasses in Nice and Monaco. Described by Yoga & Health magazine as 'The first entirely new piano technique to emerge in over 50 years', GéNIA will share her teaching on the topics of Efficient Practice with Piano-Yoga®; Combating Stage Fright with Piano-Yoga® and Musician's Body Mapping that will help musicians to learn how to pinpoint their personal strengths and weaknesses (as well as those of their students) and work on those.
The masterclass is open not only to piano players, but musicians of all instrument types. It is intended for professional musicians, students, teachers and intermediate to advanced amateur players.
The masterclass will also contain a question and answer session, where GéNIA will be available for any queries and feedback and will conclude with a short performance from GéNIA.
