Pianist Trefor Smith, a professor at Hamburg University of Music who teaches the heart of piano performance, says that his fingers are there to draw out the heart from the notes.

Lessons with great instructors are available in Japan. "Trefor Smith is not the mechanical pianist we hear about today. His playing is full of nuance and poetry, yet with clarity and plenty of power," said the German who taught him. Great pianist Wilhelm Kempf said. After studying composition and piano in his native Scotland, Trefor Smith studied abroad at the Hamburg College of Music in Germany, where he studied piano performance in earnest under Eschenbach's teacher, Eliza Hansen. Even after graduating, I learned about the techniques and spirit of outstanding musicians such as the world-famous teacher Hans Reiglaf, the famous Ravel player Vlad Perlmuter, Paul Badura Skoda, one of the three Viennese ravens, and the above-mentioned Kempf. absorbed. His emotionally rich solo performances, as well as his powerful orchestral performances, have been highly acclaimed. doing a lot. As a professor at Hamburg University of Music and Performing Arts, his teaching focuses on musical interpretation. His technical practice is limited to the parts of the piece where he stumbles, and most of his students' performance problems are solved through a better understanding of the piece. It is a lesson unique to him that "brings out the heart from the notes." The song is a free song, so please bring a song you want to learn by yourself.

If you haven't taken lessons yet, you can listen to them. There is so much you can learn by not only playing for yourself, but also watching other people's lessons. In fact, many students in Europe study through listening. It is also an opportunity to listen to the performances of many other people, and through the lessons of various people, you will be able to better understand the teaching method and personality of the teacher. Musical instruments other than the piano can also enjoy the atmosphere of overseas classes, so please feel free to join us. The teaching method of overseas professors is completely different from that of Japan. In particular, the main focus is to "enjoy and express music more", so the points to teach vary from student to student. Isn't it a big point for those who are aiming to study abroad or become a professional in the future to feel how the points of teaching are different from those in Japan? Even if you are not satisfied with Japan, it will be an opportunity to think about studying abroad.
