Invoices have now been issued by email. Please ensure these are settled by 5pm on Monday 21st May. There are 6 lessons in June/July. Your lesson time remains the same in September but do inform us as soon as possible if you require a timetable change and we will do our best to fit this in. The new timetable for lessons is issued on the 1st of July so please ensure any timetable changes have been requested by the 25th of June.

See below for news of upcoming events and also information about the 7th annual piano competition that takes place in The POD at Kingsdale Foundation School on Sunday 10th June.

Dulwich Music Festival ~ 7th annual Piano Competition
This is the first time the festival has been held in The POD and it’s well worth coming to have a look around this award-winning performance space and to hear the local piano talent that we have in South London. Nearly 100 pianists will take part on the day from beginner level to advanced. You can buy audience tickets online and we encourage all students to come along and hear pianists from age 4 playing in this unique performance space. The audience ticket is valid all day but you can choose to attend for just a couple of classes.
