WEEK ONE 29 July to 5 August
WEEK TWO 5 to 12 August
A course for accompanists of all standards dealing with all aspects of piano accompaniment from sight-reading to performance on the concert platform. A limited number of places will be available for instrumentalists wishing to play the set repertoire - they are also encouraged to bring works of their own choice.
The set repertoire will be studied in detail with a resident group of instrumentalists. At least two works should be prepared from the list but familiarity with as many as possible is desirable.
It is also intended that a joint masterclass will take place with the Masterclass for Singers. For this it is suggested that all members of the class prepare at least one song.
Student pianists will, in addition, have the opportunity to work with other instrumentalists and singers in the school.
