*A minimum of three active participants is necessary to run the workshop. Deadline to enrol is three days prior to the workshop.

If no more than three sign up, the workshop will only run for approximately 1.5 hours.

**Active participants: Please be prepared to perform a piece or part of a piece, ca 2 mins in length (or shorter), and send me a scan of the sheet music – with bar numbers marked in – prior to the workshop, so I can share it with the group. 

Beginners and advanced players/singers are all welcome!

If you are advanced you will notice that the topics – including practice methods- are often the same, but we approach them at a higher level. One of my more recent profound discoveries (well, 2017) came from teaching complete beginners on the piano, and I applied it to learning “Gaspard de la nuit” by Ravel.

About myself:

My name is Gisela Meyer and I am a pianist, accompanist and soprano with cello as side subject. As accompanist I have coached many musicians in preparation for exams and recitals. I have been teaching ensembles at the City Lit since 2011, first as tutor of the Music Foundation Course and since 2015, as tutor for Chamber Music. I have been working with singers and a variety of instrumentalists over many years and perform regularly in concerts and at functions.
