What you will learn

A course for advanced pianists, in which everyone performs and participates in discussion. There are regular opportunities for public performance. Join in any term subject to audition.

By the end of the course you will be able to

  • demonstrate artistic interpretation and technical authority.
  • Increase your knowledge of the repertoire.
  • Gain experience in class and public performance.
  • Develop your ability to discuss and communicate.
  • work harmoniously as part of a team.

Class format and activities

Each student plays several times a term and works in detail with the tutor. Usually 3 students perform during the course of a session. The attending students are urged to make comments and partake in the proceedings. Hearing others perform, a great variety of repertoire, is just as important a part of learning.

You will need to follow and contribute to discussions in English.
Music Study can include the use of digital resources such as listening to recordings, watching videos online, using appropriate mobile applications and following Moodle -Morley's virtual learning environment- to enhance your learning inside and outside the classroom.
Music study also offers a range of benefits including being an enjoyable way to enhance wellbeing. Music practice at Morley can also serve to enhance skills relevant for employment including developing creativity, developing high-concentration levels, building self-confidence, working to deadlines, being able to control nerves and working as part of a team.

In order to ensure that you make the best possible progress on your course, you will have regular feedback from your tutor, in a constructive and supportive environment.
