  1. Your website says Saturday 28th October but it is infact a Sunday!

    • Dear Raymond. Thank you so much for alerting me about the wrong date. I am indeed grateful. Please see below for full detail of the forum and keep in touch with news and events too
      Best Cristine

      Sunday 28th October 10.0 am, we are offering a forum for piano teachers entitled: ‘Who do You Think You Are’? The purpose of this forum – which is the first of its kind in the UK – is to address a hitherto increasingly urgent, yet unexplored problem concerning the health and emotional wellbeing of the piano teacher. While achieving success and high marks for the student is a given, work of this nature can be extremely stressful and largely undertaken in isolation.

      It will begin with a viewing of the film Madame Sousatzka (1988), which is based on the life and work of the formidable, but little-known teacher Maria Levinskaya. The aim is twofold: firstly, to open up issues which are rarely addressed, and yet are familiar to most piano teachers, such as: the private emotions and health issues, which may arise during teaching, and which must necessarily be contained; and the difficulties which can often arise, due to the mind/body dualism, which still pervades performance and its teaching thereof; secondly, we aim to encourage discussions on these and other issues peculiar to the piano teacher, sensitively supported by a distinguished interdisciplinary panel comprising: Prof John Sloboda, Psychologist; Murray Mclachlan, Concert Pianist, Educator and Chair of European Piano Teachers Association; Cristine MacKie, Musicologist and Author; Dr Sam Johnson, Clinical Psychologist, The Tavistock and Portman NHS Foundation Trust; the Osteopath, and Muscular Skeletal experts will tbe announced shortly. The findings will be collated and provide direction for piano teachers as well as future research.

  2. I can not find where EPTA members pay for the Sunday only session on the 28 October. Please send a link, or update the page. The link given so far takes me to the full payment for the 3-day symposium, without an option for a single day.
    Many thanks
