This course is designed for people who have are between grade 4 and grade 7 in standard. It would also suit players who reached a reasonably high standard but haven’t played for a few years, and indeed players working their way through the grades and playing regularly.
Each day typically starts with a workshop in the Finchcocks cellars. This allows rapid demonstration and practice of techniques using our seven grand pianos. In the afternoons, there is time for private practice on one of our beautiful acoustic grand pianos and individual tuition from one of our teachers. In the later afternoon, we convene for a masterclass, which involves a little bit of (very relaxed) performance in front of your classmates. At 7pm we have our pre-dinner talk or recital in the main house, which is a chance to relax and be inspired before dinner.
This course is being run by Warren Mailley-Smith.
