The Piano section has a variety of classes for both budding and more established pianists.
There are ‘own choice’ classes for specific ages of children and young people and ‘set piece’ classes for those currently studying grades 1 – 8. There is a special ‘adult’ class for age over 18 and up to grade 3 standard.
Teacher/Pupil (where the pupil only is adjudicated) and Family duets are
encouraged and specific classes are available. There is also a Trio class for three players at one piano.
The Piano section features J.S. Bach, Composition (where composers play their own work), Recital, Sonatina and Sonata classes for young people aged 10 -18. A jazz, Swing or Popular Music class is open to any age.
A separate Senior Piano section for all aged 16 and over includes Bach, Chopin, Recital and Baroque classes.
The Concerto class, (open to all) where a set movement of a well known concerto (or equivalent piece) is performed with professional orchestra, is unique for this type of festival and provides an exceptional opportunity for entrants.
There are many cups and awards in this section.
