Do you long to feel

• more connected
• less tense
• fluent and expressive

as you play the piano?

Do you struggle

  • with fluency, power, delicacy, speed, evenness, expression, ornamentation, memorising or confidence?
  • Are your go-to resources for technique serving you well?
  • Are you practising with the mindsets, whole-body coordination and flow that empower you to play to your potential?

Convention dictates

  • that you prioritise the activities of your fingers, hands, wrists and arms over their integration with the rest of your body
  • that you learn more with your eyes than your ears (almost all mainstream tutor methods teach this way)
  • that you 'work on' technique outside of a deep-seated, flowing connection to music

Piano Portals unveils

  • a truly holistic daily practice for transforming technique through deepening self-awareness
  • the revolutionary potential of putting your ears back in charge, even for the most visual learners
  • how to address technical difficulties in harmony with your body's expressive response to music

It's an accessible, enjoyable approach that harmonises your own coordination, facilitating all repertoire. It's an inspirational antidote to both conventional exercises and the endless challenge of addressing technical difficulties one by one as they arise.
