Contemporary Piano Course

Established in 2018 this new course provides an exciting opportunity to study with two leading experts in contemporary piano repertoire.

On week one we welcome award-winning pianist Sarah Nicolls. 

‘Nicolls is a genuinely “edgy Brit”, and what she does should be happening every week of the year.’ Guardian

Sarah Nicolls is a UK-based experimental pianist, at the forefront of innovations in piano performance. She invented the ‘Inside-out Piano’, a sculptural feast of an instrument played, pushed and swung in her touring show Moments of Weightlessness.

On week two we welcome Jenny Q Chai.

An artist of singular vision, pianist Jenny Q Chai is widely renowned for her ability to illuminate musical connections throughout the centuries. With radical joie de vivre and razor-sharp intention, Chai creates layered multimedia programs and events which explore and unite elements of science, nature, fashion, and art. “Jenny Q Chai, who has studied with Pierre-Laurent Aimard, is following the more eclectic path…” New York Times.

It is possible to choose up to 3 individual lessons on the course.
