Why attend?

"I know X has absolutely loved attending every year and as a parent it has been probably the most enjoyable and memorable activity we have attended over the years - not just to be able to see X perform but also to see all the other students enjoy themselves so much and develop over the years. It has certainly been one of the major influences in why X has decided to pursue a career in music."

Class Prizes

Festival Prizes

Concerto Prize with Orchestra

Recital Prizes including recital engagements

If you are a keen pianist of any standard wishing to share learning, informal and formal performances, small group classes and a festival, then you will enjoy the courses.


If you are a conservatoire student there are opportunities to win recital and concerto prizes, as well as take part in masterclasses with leading pianists.


After more than 25 successful years, most participants return the next year; the youngest enjoy the fun of the occasion; the most experienced the skilled tuition, the expert masterclasses and the further opportunities offered.
