Applying the Practice Tools - Interactive Workshop (In-person Ticket)
10 Jun 2023 @ 10:30 BST (GMT +01:00)
This full day workshop provides practical way to learn how to apply a selection of Graham Fitch’s practice tools in your daily practising and within the context of your pieces. The format is similar to that of our recent deep learning & memorisation workshop and is designed as a hands-on complement to our previous practice tools presentations.
How it works
The workshop will be divided up into several sessions focussing on one or more practice tools. Graham will give an introductory presentation for each of these sessions and will then demonstrate them in action by working with in-person participants on exercises and examples created for this event.
The sessions will also include “break-out” opportunities for the online audience to try out the examples and exercises on their keyboards at home. Graham will be on stand-by to give assistance during these sessions. The day will conclude with a general “clinic” in which Graham will address a selection of practising-related queries submitted in advance by both our online and in-person audience.
The workshop will explore a selection of practice tools using practical exercises and examples. These examples will be drawn from repertoire at an intermediate level and will be suitable for pianists from a late elementary level (approx. grade 3 / 4) through to advanced levels.
Worksheets including the examples and exercises will be sent out in advance of the event. All participants will also receive high-quality recordings of the sessions which will allow you to watch and try-out the exercises in your own time thereafter.
Here is what some of the participants had to say about previous events using this format:
“Even though I have attended other workshops on these topics before, I found this more practical format to be incredibly useful and engaging!”
“I loved the well-constructed sessions with a balanced approach of information provided combined with a chance to try out ideas at my own piano in private.”
“I enjoyed the “hands on” element, instantly putting into practice the topic of discussion is very beneficial. I would almost like to have this format all the time!”
The workshop will run from 10:30am to approximately 17:00 and will be divided up into several sessions with short breaks in-between (Timings for the individual sessions will be confirmed shortly).
