Peggy Richardson Piano Masterclass 2017

A fascinating insight into the world of the concert pianist was given by Professor John Thwaites, Head of Keyboard at Birmingham Conservatoire, in the annual Peggy Richardson Piano Masterclass on Wednesday 11th October.

Working with six girls playing music from Bach to Shostakovich, Professor Thwaites offered plenty of specialist advice, given with wit and good humour, in order to help the girls to refine and develop their already excellent performances. Girls in the audience, as well as the performers, greatly enjoyed and benefitted from a wonderful evening of piano music.

Congratulations to Kaitlyn, Alice, Ella, Ekaterina, Jackalyn and Yuka, who took part in the Masterclass.

Mr Jones, Head of Keyboard
