The first programme in our series ‘Piano Boot Camp’ will start at 8pm on Tuesday 9th June. This series will run until the end of the month with the aim of giving pianists and teachers at all levels some much needed motivation and inspiration during the current health crisis.
Being a concert pianist is not easy at the moment. No performances for me, no exams for my students - almost all piano players and teachers feel lost and demotivated. Now more than ever it is vital to share experiences on how to cope with what's happening around us Together with Coach House Pianos we decided to build a real community through interviews with more than 20 top UK pianists including Heads of Department from the leading UK conservatoires, independent schools and world-class soloists like Paul Lewis, Peter Donohoe, Imogen Cooper, Ben Grosvenor, Steven Osborne and many others Every day at (TIME) for 3 weeks starting on 9 June I will be talking to leading pianists and piano teachers about piano technique, the psychology of performing, repertoire, exciting online projects, online concerts and teaching and so much more.
