22nd Jan 2019 – We had the pleasure of welcoming concert pianist Richard Meyrick from the Pianoman Scholarships Scheme to Loreto on Friday 18th January for a piano Masterclass. It was open to all students studying piano at Loreto, as well as our GCSE and A level music students, five of whom played for Richard.  They all learned more about how to express mood and emotion when they play. Many thanks to Stella Withington-Busse 12T, Lucy Green 10S, Meja Paleckyte 10T, Ellie Marron 10S and Sofia Sabolova 9S for performing at the event.

Here’s what Lucy had to say about her experience:

“Today Richard Meyrick came to our school to teach us about expression and the importance of listening to the music we learn and play. I played ‘The Inn’ by Schumann and found his advice very helpful. It was a fantastic experience and taught me how to more appreciate the music I play.”
