The Prokofiev Course

In response to requests, KIPC has established for 2020 its 4th concurrent course, the Prokofiev Course. This is for adults who have either recently returned to, or have recently taken up, the piano. As a guide, participants are likely to be of ABRSM standard grade 1-5 but that is not a hard and fast rule. Prices are the same as for the Intermediate Course.

Why attend?

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.

Click on the 2019 Course Timetable below to see the likely format of the courses.

Please note that the precise timetable will be published once all course members are registered and tutors have been booked. Please use last year's timetable as an approximate guide.


Our courses cater for any age and are offered in these categories:


Intermediate for pianists ABRSM grades 1 to 5

Including the Prokofiev Course for adults who have recently taken up, or returned to, the piano.

Senior for grades 6 to 8

Advanced for those beyond Grade 8
