⭐ Virtual Piano Workshop with chart-topping pianist Dominic Ferris ⭐
LEARN HOW TO PLAY GERSHWIN'S THREE PRELUDES

◼️ Want some tips and advice on how to play Gershwin? Join us LIVE on 25 May at 7pm BST for a virtual piano workshop, where Steinway Artist Dominic Ferris will be demonstrating how to play Gershwin’s Three Preludes!

◼️ His projects have sold over 3 millions albums worldwide, making him the perfect teacher for this workshop.

◼️ He will be focusing on various technical and stylistic aspects of these three catchy and contrasting pieces, including:
✔ How to use phrasing to change the musical character within each prelude
✔ Ways to practise left hand jumps to land quickly and accurately
✔ How to use accents and dynamics to get the most out of Gershwin’s swift character changes
✔ Hand-crossing and ways to make this technique feel natural
✔ How to get the most out of Gershwin’s melodies (particularly in the second prelude), allowing the pianist to connect and “sing” the tune as a human voice
✔ Gershwin and syncopation: exploring the mechanics of Gershwin’s harmonic language to create drama and theatre

Some of the playing techniques demonstrated in his lesson can be applied to piano playing in general.

◼️ The workshop is approx. 1 hour long and will include a Q&A. The Zoom call will be open from 6.30pm BST to give you time to log on. Attendees are not required to perform. Simply bring yourselves and a notepad, and you are good to go.
