Drusilla Redman presents a Posture Clinic with guidance on how to check your students’ posture. Drusilla will also address the issue of Performance Anxiety and Tension.

Rosa Conrad: Rosa is a London-based composer with a wide range of repertoire for piano including duets and solo pieces, and is passionate about the early stages of music learning. Rosa will be leading a duet and creative ensemble workshop at the event. Explore how to get your beginner students engaged with harmony right from the start, through enjoyable activities which create a sense of ownership of the piece and a deeper understanding of music.

Rosa will be demonstrating from her duet books and the first book in the ‘Fun Games and Party Pieces’ series. She will show how the creative techniques outlined in this series can be applied to any piece the student plays, and at any level of study. Audience participation encouraged!
