Whatever is lacking in your technique, Fraser can see exactly where a new effort can bring your body and hand into better alignment, making your piano tone blossom with new richness and subtlety, and increasing your sense of power and agility! Alan Fraser will lead an Awareness through Movement Feldenkrais group lesson, before coaching selected piano students.
Hynoptism without Hypnosis, Martin S Taylor
Thursday 22 January, Pamoja Hall, 4.30pm. Tickets £10 (book now)
Martin S Taylor has been a stage hypnotist for over 15 years. Yet he doesn’t use hypnosis. His skills combine suggestion, social pressure and obedience. Martin is totally open about what he is doing. His scientific approach means there is no sleep, no trance and no zombie state. The show still has all the laughs, the wonder and the excitement of any hypnotist show you’ll see anywhere else and it is safe. No hypnosis is involved; even though his subjects are behaving in bizarre ways, they know what they’re doing, and they can resist if they want to.
