A Zoom link will be emailed to the membership the week of the event.
A program presentation will follow the General Meeting. Yoon Huh will present “Athletes and Musicians, Commonalities.”
As a pianist, have you ever thought about the movements made by your 10 fingers each day teaching and performing? Our fingers move far more than any athletes moving their large body parts in 12 months?
Find out the commonalities between the pianist and any athletes and see what physical conditioning is necessary in order to stay in motion for a long period of time. Since pianists require delicate dexterity in all manners of speed and strength, it requires certain training.
Explore five finger exercises that will help young students to be more flexible and at the same time, increase speed in their playing. Explore repertoires that are fun and strength building.
