We strongly believe that you know really good a piece only when you have played it. That means that everybody will play the piano for the other fellows. Not just the active students but also the auditors (don’t worry, it will be 2 pianos four hands). If you want to have a look at the piano scores before the beginning of the course, contact us and we will send you them.
