Classical Pianist Masterclass for StudentsPosted on: 23/01/2020
On Thursday, 23 January, concert pianist Richard Meyrick delivered an inspiring masterclass for students within the Music Department.
Professional pianist Richard travels the length and breadth of the UK as part of 'The Pianoman Scholarships Scheme', a national programme to encourage and nurture talented young pianists, courtesy of sponsors Sir Harvey and Lady McGrath.
Four talented pianists from Years 7 to 11 (Adam, Ethan, Ben and Kacey) were invited to prepare a solo performance piece in advance in order to take part in the masterclass, and each young performer received an individual coaching session in front of an invited audience of MABLE Music students and instrumental music students.
Richard also performed a solo work by Chopin for our students, and gave the group some entertaining insights into the world of professional music making and the art of performing.
