This master class is suitable for pianists with a wide range of abilities, from the competent amateur to the professional pianist with concert experience.
Pupils taking entrance examinations, university students and piano teachers are all welcome. Those suffering from discomfort or pain arising from the approach to technique will find the master class particularly beneficial.
Classes are held in the newly-opened Gisela Sick Education Centre, which is disabled-accessible.
Daily master classes with William Cuthbertson :
Manfred Seewann, joint editor of the official book on Peter Feuchtwanger's exercises, will assist in teaching these exercises on the course.
He studied with Karl Wingler, Erik Then-Bergh, Gitti Pirner and Peter Feuchtwanger and has often been an assistant on Professor Feuchtwanger's masterclasses.
He regularly gives conserts in Germany and in other European countries.
Each day William Cuthbertson and Manfred Seewann will work with the course participants on these technical exercises for curing playing-related disorders in pianists, which are also designed for learning a functionally natural behaviour in piano playing.
On July 30th, it will be possible to have lessons in the F.M. Alexander technique with Martina Barufke, who lives in Waldkirch and has been teaching the Alexander Technique since 1990.
She studied with Yahuda Kupperman, Elisa und Eckart Ruschmann in Freiburg.
She has also studied further with Israeli, American and German Alexander teachers.
In addition, she is qualified in Spiraldynamik and has
experience in Gindler therapy and Ideokinesis.
As in the last master class, Clemens Famm will give a lesson in "Life Kinetik".
This is both purposeful fun and an interesting change from the rest of the course - good for the brain and the coordination.
