New for 2017

Special masterclasses for amateur pianists with arthritis
Following massive interest in a Facebook post about how regular practise helps with arthritis we have reserved our July masterclass for amateur pianists suffering from arthritis. There is no set standard of playing and whether your arthritis is mild or severe this is an inspirational week for amateur pianists who refuse to let arthritis get the better of them (see more).

Teacher Symposiums
New for this year are our three Teacher Symposiums – inspired by the many Facebook discussions amongst piano teachers looking for new ideas, imaginative teaching repertoire, how to prepare students for exams, what to teach adults, or just plain looking for support.  Learn from colleagues, contribute your experience, and enjoy a week’s relaxation in a truly stunning and inspirational setting.  Extend yourself professionally and return home inspired with new motivation and enthusiasm!

Group discounts
Worthwhile savings can be made by colleagues enrolling together as a group of six for a Masterclass, or a group of 6-8 for a Teacher Symposium (see more).

Choose your date
There are fewer Group masterclasses in 2017 so that we can run more much-in-demand One-on-One coaching weeks. If none of our set dates fit your schedule, choose your own and we’ll do our best to fit you in. (enquire here)

Add-on Italian experiences
Our one complaint – “there is so much to this region, but we were too busy to explore.”  Well, now you and your family/guests can!  Combine with your masterclasses, Italian cooking lessons, visits to vineyards, hiking, or any of the many add-ons listed here either during your course, or staying extra days.

Perform in a real theatre
We’re still negotiating so can’t say too much yet, but some exciting developments ahead including the chance to perform at a wonderful theatre, something like a miniature La Scala! (see more)
