WHAT WILL WE COVER IN THE COURSE?

Core course activities will include;

  • Lessons, masterclasses and workshops with distinguished Faculty, joined by visiting specialists who will deliver other classes and concerts.
  • Opportunities to rehearse and perform ensembles, i.e. duet, 2 pianos, (3+ hands!)
  • Course concerts with the opportunity to perform to like-minded fellow pianists!
  • The “Teaching is Learning” strand of seminars and workshops offers insight into the multiple synergies of these two activities:  trying to teach any skill is a guaranteed method of improving it!
  • Fundamentals of Piano Pedagogy offers an optional, parallel mini-course on the basics of teaching. This can be used as a starting point for early-career piano teachers or a refresher for those with more experience.


RESIDENTIAL

Accommodation will be in one of the Cheltenham Ladies' College boarding houses.  Bedrooms are all single-occupancy with shared bathroom facilities.

Our in-house catering team will provide three meals a day within your residential house. Let us know if you have any specific dietary requirements or allergies at least 2 weeks prior to your arrival.  The food was one of the talking points of the 2021 course!
