WHAT HAPPENS IN A TIMANI LESSON?

A Timani lesson usually starts with a talk about your unique situation and your wishes and intentions for trying Timani. Then we make a video recording of you playing your instrument/singing and the work of the lesson in based on what we observe here. The first lesson always includes:

  • A biomechanical movement analysis based on the video.
  • An short introduction into fundamental anatomical and biomechanical knowledge in order for you to fully understand the observations made in the analysis.
  • Exercises specifically designed to open up new possibilities of coordination in your body
  • Implementation of new sensory- and motor skills into playing your instrument/singing
  • A sum-up of your experiences with the work, and instructions and exercises to take home for further explorations

If you have never tried Timani before the first lesson lasts for 90 min and costs NOK 650
A regular Timani lesson lasts for 60 min and costs NOK 500

I teach at my home studio at Holmlia, about 25 min outside of the centre of Oslo. Accessible by bus, train or car. 

I also regularly give classes, workshops, lectures and private lessons in else where in Norway and abroad.

SOME TESTIMONIALS FROM PEOPLE WHO HAVE ATTENDED TIMANI COURSES WORLDWIDE..

"During the course I had the chance to play for Miriam. She helped me find a posture that gave me a freedom in my hands that I have never experienced before. The sound was also full and warm without a lot of effort. I realized that maybe playing the viola is not so hard after all."
