Masterclass with Professor Nigel Clayton of the Royal College of Music

masterclass

On the 21st June I hosted a masterclass for some of my students.  Professor Nigel Clayton of the Royal College of Music came and conducted the masterclass for students in my garden music room.  Nigel is brilliant at  teaching students and making a masterclass a fun and engaging event.

We were delighted that Hugh Wooldridge managed to make it as he has very kindly loaned me his Bechstein piano that proudly resides in the music room.   The afternoon had a party feel on a lovely summers day.
