We have four courses available to you. The Intensive, Performer and Advanced Courses each last one week and for those of you short on time, we offer our Short Course! It has an extremely busy 3-day schedule.
Each of our four courses has a core curriculum which includes a combination of Private Lessons, Technique Classes, Masterclass or Performance Class and Piano Coaching sessions. We also offer extra classes that you can combine with the core curriculum to create your own bespoke summer school experience!
If you’re still not sure which course is right for you, then contact us and we will be happy to help design the ideal curriculum for you.
A little note… All extra option classes must have a sign up of 5 players in order to run.
