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.
Our intelligent, proactive and professional students are given plenty of opportunities to perform publicly, and to compete in major international competitions. Academy piano professors give weekly lessons and include celebrated performers, recording artists and festival directors. Visiting professors also teach one-to-one lessons and give masterclasses and lectures throughout the year.
In addition to a substantial programme of solo, concerto and chamber repertoire, we encourage you to curate performances, commission new music and collaborate across artistic boundaries – an approach that lies at the heart of our annual Summer and Autumn Piano Festivals.
