What we're about

Come and enjoy an afternoon of music with us. Share you piano playing and hear ours in a non judgemental informal environment. The idea is to provide a space for people to both perform and listen, especially to encourage those who are nervous about public performance. There is no critique or teaching element to this. Everyone plays and therefore everyone goes through the same shared nerves.

We have players of all grades from around grade 3 to post grade 8. They play a huge variety of styles from classical to Jazz. We have had flute and piano duets and even pianist singing along. Though primarily we are about piano.

The Brighton Pianists Meetup Group operates as an unincorporated association, meaning it is not a company. Consequently, the Brighton Pianists Meetup Group has no legal identity other than that of its members. This means that members are personally responsible for any liabilities (debts and obligations) that arise. Members pay an annual subscription (currently £10) to cover group administration costs.

The constitution of the unincorporated association can be found here (https://docs.google.com/document/d/1WAUXqkqzv8orPxmFn8L8abrFvGXEBK0umBucX89JhLQ/edit?usp=sharing).

New members are welcome to come along to one of our regular events. Though you will be asked to pay for the event we won't ask you to subscribe to the association until after you have joined us for your first meetup.

During Covid restrictions we are also doing some online sessions.
