There has been some feedback already from teachers and families who are so pleased to have piano events offered again, as they realise the value of these events for the children.

Multi piano sessions, Concerts and Tutorials are all highly beneficial for the children who participate.  They provide inspiration, enthusiasm and incentive.   According to the reports received from teachers in the past, children who attend are generally more eager and determined to make headway, to start practicing more and better.

The piano is a lonely instrument, and this is a chance for all students who enrol to hear others, and work with others.

So this is a strong recommendation to all teachers and parents to guide children into recognising the significant value these events will have for everyone who enrols, and to take this opportunity to apply early as places are limited.

We encourage all students to participate.  Attendance will make a difference to the motivation of the children.

The Concerts and tutorials are open to all Suzuki piano students of all ages and all levels who would like the opportunity to play and learn in a friendly and supportive environment.

The tutors for books 4 and above will be Erica Booker, Colin Watts and Laura McDonald.  For their biographies please click Here

Concerts are an ideal opportunity for students to gain valuable experience at performing to an appreciative audience. Tutorials are also available for specific book levels and post repertoire students. It is a great motivation for students to focus on bringing their repertoire up to a high standard and learning from others.

Please ensure that your children/students are well prepared for these concerts and tutorials so that they can have a really wonderful and positive experience.
