STANDARD: UPPER INTERMEDIATE, ADVANCED

Experience the wonderful world of Piano Duets and Duos with Anne and Caroline. How enjoyable and rewarding it can be to play in partnership on one or two pianos! The course is aimed at pre-formed pairs but any individual applicants are invited to get in touch and we will endeavour to match you up. Varied and exciting repertoire, familiar and less familiar, will be introduced and studied, along with your choice of pieces, tuition being in group masterclasses and in individual pairs. The tutors will perform repertoire during the course and you can play in an optional informal performance on the last afternoon. A list of pieces for study will be suggested and you can also bring pieces of your own choosing.
