CPD Lectures and Workshops

– with optional Teachers’ Discussion Forums & individual sessions.

A brand new initiative available to PTC Alumni and all interested pianists, piano teachers & students. There is no minimum requirement for these sessions…

A series of seven days of CPD Lectures, Workshops and Teachers’ Discussion Forums discussing issues and sharing expertise. 

There will be two lecture workshop sessions each day – commencing at 9.30am and 3.30pm –  with an open Teachers’ Discussion Forum facilitated by a PTC Tutor after lunch. 

Alternatively, instead of attending a Teachers’ Discussion Forum, you can book a private consultation and/or lesson with an available tutor.

OR – book a massage with Jennie, our BAPAM registered practitioner. Either after lunch or at the same time as a workshop session. NB: This is only available in April.

Below are listed the two main sessions for each day.
