BE INSPIRED!

Much more than just an ordinary week of piano masterclasses; the Oxford Piano School (OPS) gives its participants a unique opportunity to immerse themselves, head to toe, into a week of wide ranging musical activities and experiences. These are all designed to enhance and improve all aspects of their musicianship.

Aside from work on their solo repertoire, OPS students study piano duets and participate in joint ensemble performances with pupils of Oxford Cello School. For the most advanced we offer a chance to play a concerto movement with the OCS orchestra. Everyone in the OPS will also participate in a group performances of a famous piano cycle by the Composer of The Year. Other sessions will include help with piano technique, a fun approach to discovering music and learning about music history, theory, aural and choir, as well as conducting and improvisation.

Leisure activities such as swimming sessions, games and Ceilidh dancing should not be missed!

We want to inspire young pianists beyond their solo playing and connect them with fellow musicians - we believe that this way of expanding their horizon cannot be substituted by any amount of practising.
