Teacher Melanie Spanswick will coach six of you through your chosen repertoire LIVE on Zoom on Sunday 21 February



We're delighted to announce a brand-new Online Piano Course with pianist, writer, teacher, adjudicator, and composer Melanie Spanswick LIVE on Zoom on 21 February.

Melanie will coach SIX of you through your chosen repertoire, focusing particularly on sections of pieces which are causing difficulty or are proving 'Tricky'.

All elements will be discussed, from style and interpretation to technical issues and practice suggestions.

There are just SIX spaces available on this course, which will be attended by participants only. Each of you will receive an hour's one-to-one tuition divided into two half hour sessions.

Pianists of ELEMENTARY TO LATE INTERMEDIATE LEVEL are invited to apply (around Grade 2 - 7, ABRSM standard). You will have the opportunity to meet and chat to fellow course members for coffee during break times, as well as the chance to ask Melanie any piano-related questions throughout the day.

The workshop will begin at 10.00am and will finish at 4pm. There will be a short lunch break, as well as a coffee and tea break.


Melanie Spanswick is a pianist, writer, teacher, adjudicator, and composer, who has authored best-selling books on many aspects of piano performance and pedagogy.

She is a member of the piano faculty at Junior Guildhall School of Music and Drama in London, an Honorary Master Teacher at the Tom Lee Academy in Hong Kong, a faculty member at First Education, which is based in Hong Kong and Macau, and she also teaches at Eton College.
