Our piano lessons emphasize body and mind self-awareness through the development of posture, tension management, emotional intelligence and expression, and musical vulnerability.
Good posture is required when playing music. Our piano lessons foster self-awareness of how one currently carries their body versus the training of how one should carry the body which is tall and open. The practice of posture is a life skill that will carry over into a student’s everyday life.
Our piano lessons help develop an awareness to when and where your body holds tension. Body tension is every musician’s enemy. Holding one’s breath when nervous or concentrating is equal to holding onto body tension. Learning to keep the breathing loose and free keeps one’s body mindful and stable.
Our piano lessons incorporate practical technics on how to release muscle tension habits.
Our piano lessons assist in developing the awareness of how one’s body reacts when under social anxiety or stress. We help identify where one’s mental and emotional stress comes from. We coach on how to practically navigate through these feelings and how to self-analyze one’s emotions in order to acquire a more balanced and peaceful self.
Our lessons are a safe space where students can self-analyze and express their feelings and thoughts through their music. We tell students, “Every feeling is a note, every note is beautiful, and every note counts.”
Our piano lessons develop students beyond the stress of social and performance anxiety. Our desire is to help our students move on to being self-expressers who are more comfortable and confident of their own personhood.
That’s why we say, it’s more than just music here. It’s a commitment to “self”.
