Do you have a question about practising? Or are you struggling with a particular part of a piece and are not sure how to go about practising it?
In our highly popular monthly practice clinics, Graham Fitch answers practising-related questions submitted in advance by Online Academy subscribers. The clinics are free to watch live on Facebook and YouTube (An archive of past clinic recordings is also available on YouTube). Please see “frequently asked questions” below for more information on how to submit your question.
Example clinic (15th June 2022)
In this month’s practice clinic, Graham Fitch answers questions on answers to questions on co-ordination, building speed, use of expression in early keyboard music and more in preludes by Heller and Alan Bullard, one of Grieg’s most famous Lyric Pieces and Byrd’s Earl of Salisbury.
Frequently Asked Questions
I’m a subscriber to the Online Academy, how do I submit a question?
If you are a subscriber then you will receive an email with a link to a form which you can use to submit your question (please make sure that you are signed-up to receive emails from us!). You can also access this link on your dashboard by signing into your account (it’s listed under “Subscription benefits”).
Please note that to allow sufficient time for preparation, submissions will be closed two weeks before each event. We are also unable to accept questions that aren’t submitted via this form.
Unfortunately we can’t guarantee that we will respond to every question directly, but we will review all of the submissions and endeavour to cover as many as possible either in this event or in a subsequent one.
I’m not a subscriber, can I still participate?
Although question submission is only available to our Online Academy subscribers, you are most welcome to attend the session on Facebook Live or to watch after the event on Facebook or our YouTube channel.

How do I view videos of past clinics?
I’m not on Facebook, how do I view the session?
That’s no problem at all! We also publish the recordings of the sessions on our YouTube channel within a day of the event (you can also watch recordings of previous events there too!).
I missed the cut-off for a session, how do I submit my question?
Once the submissions for a specific session are closed, we will update the links to give access to the form for the next session. Therefore you will be able to submit your question for the next available session (these are usually scheduled on a monthly basis).
How do I get updates and notifications of future dates?
