WRITING THE PIANO
Tuesday 18th October, 6.30-9.30pm
1901 Arts Club, London SE1
The piano, in all its complexity and beauty, is a source of constant fascination, for those who play it and those who enjoy hearing the instrument being played.
This special event will explore how that fascination and engrossing engagement with the instrument translates into words. Three leading UK bloggers on the piano and piano teaching will explore different approaches to writing about the piano, pianism, being a pianist, piano playing, the instrument and its literature. The event will be of interest to pianists of all levels, professional or amateur, piano teachers, piano enthusiasts and music lovers in general, and takes place in the intimate and convivial surroundings of the 1901 Arts Club.
Pianist Elspeth Wyllie will give a short recital of music by Gabriel Faure and Nicholas Sackman to open the event
Graham Fitch – acclaimed pianist, teacher, writer and author of the Practising the Piano blog and ebook series, founder of the Online Academy
Andrew Eales – pianist, teacher and creator of the Piano Dao blog

The bar and lounge at the 1901 Arts Club will be open before and during the event for the exclusive use of guests.
