Masterclasses in Schools

Richard plays 1Since 2005, Richard has now made more than 400 visits to British schools to deliver his inspiring and unforgettable piano masterclass. Richard works with up to six young pianists (from Grade 3 to the most advanced) and an audience of other musically-minded students (e.g. exam classes). Each participant brings along an item of piano music they would like to work on, and Richard's aim is to broaden the thinking of these young musicians. He gives them new perspectives, techniques and goals for the preparation and presentation of their pieces. As part of the Masterclass, Richard himself plays one or two works, carefully chosen to inspire and enthral. Schools are welcome to invite additional pianists from neighbouring schools to make up the numbers as required. We are constantly looking for new schools for Richard to visit.
