This event can offer an invaluable opportunity for you to play, listen, experiment, doodle, sing . . . just you, alone at the piano. 

This event is an opportunity for you to enjoy that experience and ( if you wish ) let yourself respectfully request that whoever there ( friends & family ) consider taking a take a wee step back to allow an extra breathing space from the pressures that can often exist to perform  or entertain. This event is intended to offer people a chance to play a high quality acoustic piano and to make a clearer connection with your own musical voice. This is something worthwhile in its own right, though if you also want to play in public with more confidence you will know that we need opportunities to sense how we are walking on stage.

The choice is yours . . . to invite friends & family to listen while you play ( along with other participants/ listeners in the hall ) or to request ( on the booking form ) that you have no audience at all . . . and simply have a rare opportunity to play the piano alone.

LOD ( Spring ) Saturday May 4th 2019, the Mitchell Library
