Welcome

Over the last 40 years, the Summer School for Pianists has established a central and unique position in the field.

And now – we’re moving! From 11th-17th August 2019 the Summer School for Pianists will take place at Stowe School in Buckinghamshire, set amidst 250 acres of magnificent National Trust gardens landscaped by ‘Capability’ Brown, with masterclasses taking place in the splendour of the State Music Room of Stowe House as well as in the new music department of this All Steinway school.

Combining a friendly atmosphere with musical expertise, the Summer School for Pianists has become an essential annual event for pianists of all levels. Superb facilities at Stowe School ensure that music takes centre stage for a week, with top class concert instruments and plenty of practice rooms. The masterclasses, lecture presentations, tutor and student concerts, ensuite accommodation and good food in a stunning location create an event that is informative, stimulating and sociable for all pianists – and music lovers who simply wish to observe.
