Recitals & Workshops

The Alan Fraser Piano Institute is a week-long think tank intensive combining piano lessons, lectures and Feldenkrais Awareness Through Movement classes — the most effective format for deepening and sharing Alan Fraser’s inquiry into piano technique yet developed.

The Institute continues to expand, with divisions now in Smith College, Salt Lake City, Ottawa, Canada, Cologne, Germany, St. Vallerin, France, London, England and Haarlem, Netherlands.

Smith College, Northampton, Massachusetts, USA.

In 2011 Smith College hosted the first ever Alan Fraser Piano Institute which featured Alan Fraser alone. Individual, handcrafted lessons were augmented with Feldenkrais Awareness Through Movement lessons as well as lectures on specific aspects of technique taken from The Craft of Piano Playing and Honing the Pianistic Self-Image. An ideal opportunity to clear up questions you have about Alan Fraser’s writings, and to finally create that transformation in your piano technique you’ve been dreaming about for years.

Concordia University, Montreal

Fraser teaches at his old alma mater over every July 1st weekend. It’s a nice chance to combine work with the master and listening to some of the masters of Jazz – the International Jazz Festival hits town the same weekend.

Quebec City

And when he then heads east to summer in the Maritimes he may drop in at the Conservatoire de Musique du Quebec for a couple of days teaching en route.
