Reported by Gabriela Parczyńska, Yamaha EuropeYamaha Music Europe Branch Poland (YME-Poland) has been making great progress in popularizing the Disklavier technology among the most renowned music institutions in Poland.
Especially during the current pandemic, the ability to take lessons remotely seems to be an ideal solution for Polish universities, meeting the needs of students and professors alike. Most importantly, the Disklavier system frees musicians from the constraints of geography, allowing them to share their skills, abilities and talents regardless of their place of residence.
On the 12th of April 2021, YME-Poland, in cooperation with the Regional Initiative of Excellence association, organized a unique remote lesson between the Music Academy in Bydgoszcz and Ginza Hall in Japan. The splendor of the event was increased by the fact that the teacher was Ewa Poblocka – a Polish pianist and outstanding pedagogue, who is also a member of the jury of the International Fryderyk Chopin Piano Competition.
Conducted under very strict sanitary conditions, the lesson itself was a huge success. The Disklavier technology makes online teaching feel very similar to that of traditional lessons — thanks to its great capabilities combined with camera and conference solutions.
The YME-Poland office is not resting on its laurels: in the very near future, we plan to merge three outstanding universities — one in Poland and two on the American continent, thanks again to our Yamaha unique solution.
With the example of Disklavier technology, Yamaha has yet another chance to prove to the world that music knows no barriers, and, through the innovation and dedication of our employees, to promote and keep alive values like the spirit of belonging, constant improvement of musicianship, hope, and the beauty that comes from playing the piano.
