Summer workshop : LUSENET : To Hear Ourselves As Others Hear Us : One Thread

A number of questions have come up that we could address in a summer workshop. These include the learning techniques from my book, outlining, information about audio gear to use, and so on.

Is anyone interested in a one-week workshop, here in Los Angeles or in some other (preferably beautiful) spot? This would be for musicians of all levels and all instruments.

Possibly---we may bring bicoastal families together this summer in the Sierra If so, might be interested.

Yes, but I'm more interested in the "basic stroke" of playing a piano. I'd like to correct mine. Seems that practicing Hanon with quarters balanced on wrists is wrong after viewing the video, "Freeing The Caged Bird" and reading Abby Whiteside.

There are at least several "basic strokes" and possibly many of them; not just one. "Practicing Hanon with quarters balanced on wrists" is certainly not the way to acquire a technique; it's probably closer to the opposite. A workshop on basics of technique is an interesting idea. I'm not sure offhand that a workshop would last long enough for useful teaching and learning, though; acquiring a solid fundamental technique is more likely to require regular lessons. Where are you, and are there no fine teachers there?

I live in Saugerties, NY. It is located in the historic Hudson Valley 100 miles north of the Big Apple.

After coming upon your Summer Workshop, I though I'd look into it and try to schedule a vacation/visit to my son who lives in Cypress Ca.

FYI your software did not send me an email alert of your response.
