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.
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 previous courses!
