Do you love the piano? If so, this group is for you. We aim to meet approximately every other month to chat, play and listen to each other. Any ability is welcome, and play sessions will be divided into Beginners, Intermediate and Advanced levels. The idea is to have fun, gain confidence, motivate and encourage each other. Any style or genre is welcomed. Try out a short, simple piece to help build confidence, or give yourself a challenge. Get from it what's right for you!
There are no joining fees or annual fees for this group, but there is a small fee of around £5 for each session to help pay for hire costs and Meet Ups fees. Social sessions in pubs/cafes are free. Meet Ups have currently moved to the Coda Music Centre in New Milton, where there is potentially more space.
• All pianists of any ability - come and meet like minded friends. Play to each other, chat over a cuppa, or if you're nervous just come and listen (bring your music just in case you're tempted to join in!). We'll try out a great new venue - the Coda Music Centre in New Milton, where there is a lovely Yamaha Grand to play on, and a large Café/sofa space for tea and chats afterwards.
Beginners, Intermediate and Advanced players will play in three groups/sections. Use it as an opportunity to try out whatever you wish - a new piece or even part of a larger work, a short simple tune to just get used to performing, or a challenge such as a new genre, or memorization perhaps?
We will meet and play regularly, approximately every two months - a good opportunity to give yourself a goal, gain confidence in performing to others, be inspired by others' pieces and playing, or just chat about favourite pieces etc.
Please tick to indicate you're attending, and bring £5 to pay on the door (whether performing or not) which will help to pay for expenses of room hire and Meet Up fees. Thank you.
