Piano Accompaniment course: your experience

Piano Accompaniment is available as a full-time postgraduate course. The curriculum is designed to train pianists in every aspect of the discipline, through exposure to a broad range of song and instrumental accompaniment, duo work and chamber music.
















We train our pianists to the highest level of concert performance, combined with maximum versatility and employability.

Academy accompaniment students have an impressive level of success in major singing competitions and many are now prominent recitalists themselves. Former students are now successful concert and recording artists, conductors, répétiteurs, vocal coaches, staff accompanists and teachers.

Our professors include celebrated performers and pedagogues, recording artists and festival directors. Students can express a desire to study with specific professors after accepting their place to study in the Academy. The Head of Piano Accompaniment will consult with the student and professors and consider with great care how to get the best ‘fit’ for each student’s development. Visiting Professors come in frequently to work with students in masterclasses, give lectures, and teach one-to-one lessons.
