Yamaha Music UK has announced details of a tour of leading conservatoires, complemented by a high profile presence at some of the UK’s principal piano teachers’ conferences and events throughout August and September. The tour takes Yamaha’s new AvantGrand and Clavinova pianos to the following institutions:
13 September, Birmingham Conservatoire, Birmingham
15 September, Royal Northern College of Music, Manchester
20 September, Royal Academy of Music, London
Piano teachers, piano professors and those who use pianos in their teacher – for example for accompanying or group keyboard teaching, including keyboard labs – are cordially invited to join us at one of these three events. They can reserve places by contacting: Richard Ashby (07966 122947) or Yamaha UK’s music education department (01908 369216).
Yamaha’s education department manager Bill C Martin comments, “The new N1 AvantGrand and CLP 400 series Clavinova pianos represent the most significant improvements in tone, touch and overall musical capability since their inception. We want to provide piano teachers and artists alike with a convenient opportunity to get closer to the instruments to better understand the performance and teaching potential. Our own research shows that the views of many teachers on these instruments was formed quite some time ago, and they may not be aware of the huge technological progress and advances made by Yamaha.”
