What is a masterclass?
A masterclass is a special lesson where a student performs a piece of music in front of an audience, and an expert musician (the master) provides constructive feedback and guidance. It is a unique learning opportunity where students can benefit not only from the feedback they receive but also from observing the instruction and suggestions given to other students. This setting helps students to improve their skills and gain new insights into their music.

Who can take part in the masterclass?
Piano students of all levels can participate in the masterclass. An additional fee applies. Each student should prepare one piece of music to perform in front of an audience. This provides valuable feedback and experience in a masterclass setting, which is a rare opportunity for young musicians.

Yes, absolutely! This event is designed for parents, whether they have a musical background or not, to help you understand and discover how you can support your child's musical learning at home and beyond.

Is the event suitable for piano students and their parents & teachers only?

The focus is on music teaching and learning, making the discussions relevant to all instrumentalists. Advanced piano techniques will be covered, but the program is designed to benefit all participants - students, parents, and teachers alike.

Will my child be engaged for the whole day?
The day is broken into sessions with breaks. Each session is interactive, engaging and inspiring. You don’t sit all day to listen but will have plenty of opportunities to share and discuss. It is designed to be fun and exciting. In the unlikely circumstances that you or your child feels overwhelmed, you can alway take a break then come back.

Can I attend the morning or afternoon session only?
Yes, you can come and go as you wish, but we strongly advise attending the workshops that take place at the start of the morning session and immediately after the lunch break. You will gain a lot from them.
