The London Piano Meetup Group hosted a masterclass with GeNIA, Russian pianist, teacher and creator of the Piano-Yoga holistic piano method, at the recital room at Schott Music in central London today.
One of the participants, Ian, reviewed the event for us on his blog:
GéNIA at Schott Music in London.
The final installment of my interview with GéNIA, in which we discuss teaching by Skype, the Piano-Yoga book and a way to help the pianist relax
In this interview we discuss GéNIA’s forthcoming projects, favorite pianists, our thoughts on up and coming young pianists, GéNIA’s love of Rachmaninoff, and debunk of several piano myths!
In this interview we discuss GéNIA’s students, the advantages and disadvantages of examinations, performances and competitions, and the differences between teaching younger and adult learners.

In the third of my interviews with pianist and teacher GéNIA we discuss how GéNIA developed the Piano-Yoga® method out of a necessity to strengthen her hands and how it evolved into an holistic body/mind piano technique.
