It is my privilege to have been invited back for the 5th consecutive year to the Summer School for Pianists, taking place at Wolverhampton University in Walsall this coming August.
If you are a pianist looking for a friendly, safe and supportive course then Walsall is for you. The six days are filled with classes, tutor piano recitals, student concerts and lecture-presentations by the tutors, with plenty of opportunities for socialising. If you don’t fancy participating, you may come as an observer – and there will be plenty to observe!
Over the last 40 years, the Summer School for Pianists has established a central and unique position in the field. Combining a friendly atmosphere with musical expertise, the Summer School for Pianists has become an essential annual event for pianists of all levels. The superb facilities at the all-Steinway Performance Hub offer top-class concert instruments and plenty of practice rooms.
The dates for this year are 13 – 19th August 2016, and our tutors are James Lisney, Christine Stevenson, Karl Lutchmayer, Ann Martin-Davis and myself. Some of the classes are already full, but there is a waiting list (people have been known to drop out for a variety of reasons) so it is worth applying. With freedom of movement between classes (you may drop in on any tutor’s classes whenever you wish), there’s always the opportunity hear what is going on in another tutor’s class, or to sign up for a private lesson with a tutor of your choice.
