Course - Adult Amateur - available as online course
The Adult Amateur course has proved very popular with enthusiastic adult amateurs – all standards of playing are welcome. The new online course provides an opportunity to have individual lessons from the outstanding faculty as well as a live group class during the week. The final morning will provide an opportunity to perform to each other on Zoom.
This all encompassing course is united by everyones love of the piano and the desire to be in a group of like minded, supportive individuals. The daily workshops incorporate all levels of playing and everyone is encouraging and positive, regardless of the standard of repertoire. The intense individual lessons are complemented by the workshops and the opportunity to play in a small room reserved for this course in the evenings.
The daily workshops are 2 hours in length, allowing for all participants who are enrolled on the adult amateur course to be together in one hall. Everyone is very friendly and the atmosphere will be warm and inviting, offering a supportive setting for everyone to play. It is possible to perform as little as one bar, a line, or a compete work, and a warm reception is always guaranteed!
This course is ideal for pianists who want to have an encouraging and understanding support group to exchange ideas with and receive inspiration from each other. We welcome all ages of pianists. Enthusiasm is the main criteria for this course – not ability.
‘The words ‘thank you’ are totally inadequate to express what I feel. My teachers were all amazing, and I count myself blessed to have had such an opportunity. That I felt that they all took me seriously, despite being an amateur, was a tribute to their genuine love of what they were doing, and I was so, so grateful. I can’t believe I have learned and experienced so much in 1 week.’ Malcolm M
