This section provides opportunities for everyone from the beginner to the post graduate music student and caters for the talented youngster as well as the adult novice or the skilled performer.
Different genres, periods and national schools of piano playing are covered. Some classes are devoted to the performance of particular composers such as Bach, Beethoven, Chopin and Liszt, while others leave the choice of work entirely to the performer, but if you cannot find a class that seems exactly what you want, please get in touch and we will see how we can best accommodate you.
In addition to solo classes, there are also opportunities for piano duets.
The closing date for piano entries is Thursday 1st March 2018.
This year piano classes will be held at Hampstead Garden Suburb Free Church, Central Square, NW11 7AG
There will now be piano classes on an additional day, Thursday 19th April
