Episode 57 – Ballet Studio Communication

This episode explores in more detail the importance of communication in ballet class, and the most effective ways to do it, so the pianist and teacher can get the most out of each other.

David begins talking about eye contact being first and foremost.  And the team add in that visuals are essential.  Teacher and pianist have to be able to see each other throughout, to be able to instruct each other and navigate class smoothly.

Chris, Akiko, and Matt all share instances where they have had to chat to the teacher while playing, in urgent matters.  And Akiko explains that she can’t speak in her second language, but she can her mother tongue.  Very interesting!

This episode is filled with laughter as per usual, but there is something very insightful and useful that can be got from it.
