Good morning!

I've set up a monthly piano group for amateur pianists in Central London.

All of the groups have performance opportunities and take place at different venues in Central London, all with really lovely pianos. Some are aimed at beginner to intermediate pianists, others are for advanced level. Most are mixed and open to any level. We also have masterclasses on specific issues like tension in playing, effective piano practice etc.

Here is a link to join our mailing list. Membership of the group is free.

What a lovely idea! Best of luck with it, and I hope you'll come back here and provide some reports of the proceedings. It might inspire others to set up similar groups in their areas.

Thank you!

We've had a few groups so far. You can see some photos from our launch event in May here, it was a lot of fun. We handed out free copies of magazines to attendees and had a short performance from an up and coming young pianist Emmanuel Vass:
