Newsletter (June 2019)

June has been spent teaching, writing and doing the admin for future trips overseas with a few UK based masterclasses. My Oxford piano students have been hard at it, some preparing for their first-year recitals and others their final third year recitals, which for me has meant blocks of very intense lessons followed by no lessons […]

Newsletter (May 2019)

Going back to Sweden again this month was another wonderful experience which I enjoyed as much as my trip in March, if not more so.

The project that I had intended to write about in this newsletter is nowhere near finished and I am hoping and trusting that I will be able to write about it fully in June’s newsletter. It has ended […]

Newsletter (June 2017)

Newsletters are funny things. I write them predominantly to people who I don’t know and have never met, but have either subscribed to watch theBeyond Stage Fright videos or for any other reason, have ended up on this newsletter list. Last time I wrote it, I asked people to let me know whether it was of […]

The last month has been totally dominated by international travel. My trip to Dubai, Hong Kong and Singapore was wonderfully stimulating and enriching with some exciting invitations for future trips coming up over the next year. Dubai As a relatively new city in the United Arab Emirates, Dubai is fast establishing a good classical music […]
