about the workshops

We introduce a new type of remote learning for pianists from our studios in South West France. In response to demand by participants of our initial online 4 day course, held in May 2020, we have been offering a series of one-day interactive workshops which were held throughout 2020 and now continue in 2021. The fee is usually £100 for the day (a little more when we also have a guest teacher) and includes a follow-up 30 minute individual lesson at a time of your choice.

The significant difference from other online offers is that Ann and Helen work simultaneously from their two studios with each participant, offering different solutions and approaches.

Absolutely great – lovely, fun, challenging, inspiring…

What a wonderful day, what great imparting of knowledge and perceptions and what a pleasure to be doing all this in a gemütlich group of people!

Simon, participant in Focus on Bach, January 2021

The workshops are the cumulative result of Helen and Ann’s now considerable experience of online individual and group teaching and offer a new way to engage with piano learning online.

A typical workshop day is divided into four sessions, each with a topic focus, with time to try out the techniques at your piano at home. We encourage questions using the Zoom chat function as well as a Q&A after the last session. There will also be the opportunity for socialising with the scheduled coffee, tea and drinks at the end of the day.

Just to say thank you again for the generosity with which you shared your knowledge and expertise, always doing so in a way that respected the student and left us feeling so encouraged.

I must thank both of you so much for today.  I learnt a lot and it was a wonderful oasis of the last few weeks. Formidable!
