Open to pianists of any level from Beginners-Grade 5. This is deliberately aimed at anyone out there who hasn't yet come to a session because they might feel intimidated by pianists who they imagine to be more advanced than them. No one higher than approximately grade 5 level please. Beginners are especially encouraged. Come along and try out your pieces to a small, friendly and supportive group of other pianists (no audience). Just part of a work, or the whole thing; just one piece, or several; a polished piece, or one that it is in it's infancy. Maybe you want to try out playing a piece from memory? Or playing in an idiom that is outside your comfort zone? Or maybe you simply want to perform a piece that is technically really easy for you just to gain confidence in performing in front of others? Whatever your reasons use the opportunity to gain from it what you need. The idea is to get experience and build confidence in playing in front of others and to generally have fun with the sharing experience. (Please don't use it to compare yourself with others, which can be demoralizing - that's not the idea at all). Play what you feel comfortable with, and for reasons that are valuable to you. It's simply a personal journey. We will be playing on a Bluthner grand piano at my house. Numbers are limited to 6 as it's a small room. After discussion with past groups it would now seem reasonable to make a small charge (£4), not only to establish a commitment to turning up, but also to help reimburse me for the annual costs imposed by MeetUp for running the site.
