Piano Course

Julian Jacobson

A course for the advanced amateur pianist and piano student that will explore issues of interpretation and  technique over a wide range of keyboard repertoire. It will also help students face the specific demands, imaginative and practical, that different individual performance styles require.

Repertoire: Students are invited to bring to the class three or four pieces of their own choice in a variety of styles. They are also encouraged to bring something unusual that reflects their own personality.

At the end of the week the course will give a concert. The selection of students to take part in this event will be at the sole discretion of the course director.

Ample time will be allotted for each work to be heard and discussed.
