Normandy Piano Week
At Present there is only one course available in September each year. This is aimed at adult amateurs of all ages and abilities. More courses are being planned, subject to demand, particularly for younger players.
The Normandy Piano Week course includes an introduction to Alfred Cortot's exercises on piano technique and his approach to solving specific technical problems. Participants are encouraged to prepare at least one work from the list below as well as preparing other pieces with which they are already familiar. The approach is primarily oriented towards improving the freedom of participants' playing and thereby raising their level of playing. Techniques for memorising and practical elements of harmony will also be shown.
There will be many opportunities to perform, albeit in an informal atmosphere!
