Piano Master Class Series
Mindfulness, Confidence & Performance
A Piano Master Class Series in New York City
January 16 – February 27, 2020
Do you wish you felt more confident as a solo performer?
Would you like to explore new ideas at the piano that will make a big difference in your playing?
Can you picture yourself among a supportive group of fellow pianists who, like you, want to take their playing to a new level?
In this seven-week series, we’ll look at all aspects of playing the piano – physical, mental, sensory, and emotional – and how to maximize the use of all of your abilities.
The first six master classes will include a mindfulness practice, group discussion, and a 45-minute session at the piano with each of three selected pianists. Both this small group and all general participants will participate in the opening practices and discussions.
The seventh class will be a problem solving session for those who are not playing in the master classes. Each of these general participants will be invited to bring in a specific problem to solve at the piano, and to work with Madeline in a 10-minute laser session.
The series will take place on Thursday evenings from 7:00 to 9:30 pm, at St. John’s in the Village, Waverly Place, New York City.
Pianists will be selected through application with video, followed by audition and interview. Substantial scholarships will be provided by the Art of Practicing Institute.
Following the conclusion of the series, the three performing participants will play in a concert for the public.
Applications will be available soon.
