On Sunday 1 March, we welcomed renowned pianist, chamber musician and teacher, Carole Presland who came to give a talk and workshop for our piano pupils.
She inspired us all to confront stage fright and gave brilliant tips on how to tackle nerves, as well as discussing the importance of stage presence and bowing correctly. This led nicely on to a few of our pianists performing their pieces to her and receiving feedback in a public lesson. What Carole is able to do so beautifully is provide pupils with the right questions so that they can find the answers for themselves. The results were instant and everyone that attended was able to take something from it.
