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.
