With James Lisney, Clara Rodriguez and Margaret Fingerhut

Now in its seventeenth year, the course enjoys the atmosphere of a relaxed house party with masterclasses on technique, presentations, Q and A sessions, recitals by students and tutors, and delicious home-cooked meals. It runs from Monday 27th to Thursday 30th July 2020.

Residential accommodation within the house is possible, with some students visiting daily or making their own arrangements with local hotels. As well as our extensive gardens to enjoy, there is a heated outdoor swimming pool.

‘James’ expertise and enthusiasm gives everyone the confidence to perform at the daily masterclasses and evening concerts, but it is at the individual sessions, where the magic really happens. It is here that James gives you the full insight into what you are playing – how to tackle the piece as a whole, but more importantly, how to practice the individual sections and master the technical difficulties. Everyone comes away inspired to improve their technique and practice even harder – but also having had a really enjoyable experience working with a true professional. I would wholeheartedly recommend these courses to any aspiring pianist.’
