25th Annual Summer Piano Week – 1st – 5th August 2023

We’re back with another legendary Piano Week, running from 1-5th August 2023.

Immerse yourself in four days of intensive tuition in jazz, blues, funk and Latin style piano, with modules on improvisation, rhythm, harmony and modal jazz. Followed by a fifth day in Studio A, recording your own trio track (you on a grand piano that was played here by Nina Simone!) with a pro rhythm section.

The tutors will be Nikki Yeoh, Tim Richards, and John Crawford with a fourth tutor TBC. Each teaching day will have a theme or several themes, and the students will be divided into two groups, swapping over after lunch break.

On the recording day, you’ll be working with drummer Mark Mondesir and bassist Dominic Howles and with Nikki as musical director, you can’t go wrong.

The cost for the whole course is £395 for five days, all tuition and recording included, plus full band rehearsal on day 4.

You will come away with a lot more knowledge and a state-of-the-art recording of your piece. Please note that the pieces are from a selection of jazz, blues or Latin standards and not original compositions.

This course is not for beginners. You should know your way around scales and reading music, but we can make some exceptions for those who play very well by ear.

Places are strictly limited to 12! For an application, email:
