Around 22 pianists participated in a packed program of piano study in the historic surrounds of National Trust property Glenfern, in East St Kilda, Melbourne. Guest teaching staff included Betty Vergara-Pink, formerly Professor of Piano and Piano Pedagogy, Musikhochschule Freiburg and Dr Sandra Nash, Director of Studies, Dalcroze Australia. Team of Pianists staff were Prof Max Cooke, Darryl Coote and Robert Chamberlain, who devised and directed the event.

Due to the pandemic, we have decided not to run a Spring Piano School in 2020. This program normally takes place at the National Trust historic house Glenfern, in East St Kilda, where piano students currently at Primary or Secondary school and aged 8 to 18 years enjoy a program of piano classes, workshops and individual lessons with teaching staff that include experienced pianists and teachers from the Team plus special guests.
Due to the corona virus situation, the final two recitals in our 2020 series must, unfortunately, be postponed:
Our hope is to reschedule these events to dates after the corona-virus pandemic has passed. For supporters who have already purchased tickets for these concerts please click here for an earlier email which explains the options for a refund, for credit to future events or for full or partial donation.
Do keep an eye on this website - we hope to hold two more live-streamed recitals from Glenfern once the lifting of restrictions allows this to happen, hopefully in October/November!
