Find your artistic identity, develop your technique and become a well-rounded 21st-century musician
The Academy’s innovative Piano Department is led by the internationally renowned pianist Joanna MacGregor.
We’re a very international department, with around 80 young solo pianists coming from over 30 countries. We focus on developing artistic and professional potential through four years of undergraduate study, Master’s programmes, Professional and Advanced Diplomas, all the way to doctoral programmes.
We offer a world-class piano training programme to develop the skills necessary for a contemporary career. We’ll help you develop performance skills; we’ll nurture your ability to curate festivals and concert series, and to create recording opportunities; we’ll build your confidence to compose, improvise and conduct, and to explore early keyboards; and we’ll help you determine your artistic personality by developing your digital profile and collaborating with artists of all kinds.
There’s individuality and excitement involved in being a pianist here at the Academy – by being a deeply creative, ambitious and proactive musician.
