30.04.2021- Conversation concert with the American pianist KATIE MAHAN

With the SCHNEEMANN®-KLAVIERSCHULE and Mailyn R. Henseler as hostess

A concert by an internationally renowned and outstanding pianist. It's worth it: Katie Mahan will not only perform a pianistically demanding Beethoven programme at the highest level, but will also explain and illuminate the programme in an entertaining way so that listeners can better understand and feel what makes Beethoven's piano music so rich.

Student successes from the press:

One of Mailyn's pupils reaches the highest musical level at the recent "Central Switzerland Youth Music Competition". She has been taught by M. R. Henseler in the SCHNEEMANN® piano learning system since the age of 5. She also received musical inspiration from Dorian Keilhack, who taught at the Uri Music Academy (founded by M. R. Henseler) from 2012 to 2015.

Mailyn emphasises how Nina has achieved this goal: "The SCHNEEMANN® piano learning system stands for a new piano teaching culture in which top performance on the piano is not achieved through pressure and drill, but with the help of intelligent, neuroscientifically based learning concepts that promote both the joy of playing, the joy of learning and the person as a whole through piano playing."
