During the evening, you will have the opportunity to create ideas in conversation that then inspire a spontaneous piano improvisation that is customized just for you, as you lie under the piano!
You will have an opportunity to purchase a copy of all of the music that Craig composes that night.

Bring along one of your favorite potluck dishes or appetizers. Keep in mind there are 14 people (inc. Craig and me) total for serving sizes, etc.

MEET CRAIG ADDY
Vancouver pianist and composer Craig Addy was born in 1962 and has been improvising at the piano since he was a child. He has two music degrees: A B.Mus from the University of British Columbia and an ARCT Performer’s Diploma from the Royal Conservatory of Music in Toronto.
As a young teenager, he used to lie under the piano while his mother played beautiful classical music. A recent visit to Showcase Pianos gave Craig an opportunity to get under a piano again. It had been over 30 years. The power of his teen experience came flooding back, but this time with a conscious awareness of the effects the vibrations were having on his entire body.
Craig combined his unique improvisational artistry with the experience of lying under his grand piano and began sharing this with people in his life. “Under the Piano” was born.
Craig and fellow musician friends are also the originators of the events called, Musical Oasis every week in DT Vancouver at St. Andrew’s-Wesley United Church – “A purely musical experience with no spoken word, Music Oasis was designed to embrace both spiritual people of any faith and non-spiritual people.”
