What we're about

If you love playing or listening to the piano, our group is for you!

Having established "Let's Play The Piano! - Manchester" in 2015, we thought it would be great if Leeds also had a group!

All abilities/styles welcome and no previous performance experience required (playing is optional).

The events will be informal, the aim being to increase performance confidence, have fun and meet new friends. If you'd like to try a duet, just bring it along!

Refreshments are included and non-players/audience welcome too.

There's an attendance fee of £6. This is just to cover operational costs including insurance.

Besbrode Pianos ( http://www.besbrodepianos.co.uk ) have very kindly offered us private use of the Steinway floor of their showroom. As you can see from the photo, it's very impressive and we'll be spoilt for choice on which piano to use! The events will be on a Sunday afternoon, so plenty of free parking outside. It's also about 15mins walk from Leeds train station.

Looking forward to seeing you at an event soon!

June Event at The Clothworkers Hall (Leeds Uni) - Players/Audience Welcome

Clothworkers Centenary Concert Hall

All welcome to our next event at the wonderful Clothworkers Centenary Concert Hall at The University of Leeds. The university's music school has been an All-Steinway School, since 2017, and we'll have the use of an incredible Steinway Model D piano in the Concert Hall along with a Steinway Model B in the adjoining Concert Hall Foyer / Clothworkers Bar. The University of Leeds are supporting the group as part of their community engagement programme, making access to this superb venue possible.

About the event

Let's Play The Piano is open to all and a great opportunity to practice performing regardless of ability, experience or musical style. Playing is optional however, non-pianists are welcome to enjoy the music. Maybe you're thinking of learning the piano and would like to find out more. It's also great way to make new friends!

We have the venue from 1.45pm-5:00pm so you're welcome to arrive as early as you wish in time for our 2:30pm start. The event will run until 4.30pm with an interval so plenty of time to chat to other attendees over tea/coffee.

There's a multi-story car park onsite along with other parking which will be available at a large discount for attendees (details will be confirmed nearer the date)

If players could aim for a single piece not more that 7mins (incl. setup/intro) that would be ideal. If you'd like to try something longer just get in touch before the event and we can see what might be possible. Look forward to seeing you and happy playing in the meantime!

Standard attendance is £7 (players or audience) payable in advance via the link below or on the day by cash or card. Students & Limited Income (on request) £4

Tea/coffee and other refreshments included.
