Tickets to the first masterclass on 18 August are now available
We are delighted to announce that Steinway Artist Alisdair Hogarth will host four online Zoom masterclasses over the coming months.
The first masterclass, How to Memorise a Piece, will take place live on Zoom on Wednesday 18 August, 7pm BST. Hogarth will give his top tips and advice on:
✔ Memory tricks
✔ Playing melodic lines with one finger
✔ How to deal with playing from memory in performance
✔ Alternative options to performing from memory
We first launched our online Zoom masterclasses and webinars back in May. Fellow Steinway Artist Dominic Ferris hosted three webinars across the months of May, June and July, all of which were extremely successful. We are delighted to be welcoming another top class pianist to continue the sessions!
Full details and tickets can be found below. We hope to see you there.
