CPD Lectures and Workshops

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

In 2019-20, there will be no differentiation between Taster Days and CPD Workshops: whether you would like to come to observe the PTC, or to gain some professional development, choose your days and fill out the application below. After attending the day, you will receive a Certificate of Attendance stating how many hours of professional development you have undertaken.

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

There will be various lectures available throughout the day for you to choose which you would like to attend, making the day as relevant to you as possible.

You also have the option of booking a private consultation and/or lesson with an available tutor.
