Adult Piano Weekends

Be part of the Pro Corda Adult Piano Method!

Pro Corda’s Adult Piano programme offers a warm, friendly, and highly supportive unique method to all adults who want to advance their piano playing to all levels together with those coming back to piano learning as an adult, or those who have always had learning piano on their bucket list and now want to give it a go!

The course includes:

  • A chance to explore new music & develop piano technique.
  • Improvisation classes and piano duet sessions.
  • Sessions with a top personal trainer focusing on relaxation and posture.
  • A chance to perform in concerts and a special champagne and jazz evening.

At the heart of the programme are the Adult Piano Weekends at Pro Corda’s home, Leiston Abbey. Providing a beautiful escape in the heart of the Suffolk countryside alongside a piano course with internationally famous pianists and teachers – but who specialise in offering a supportive approach that suits the individual goals and paces that each participant wants to pursue.

There are some wonderful extras thrown in and the emphasis is always on everyone having a great time socially. Pro Corda / Leiston Abbey’s chefs prepare delicious food using locally sourced ingredients and catering for all dietary needs. But also included in the full board package is a “Champagne and Jazz” evening in the Abbey Farmhouse Tudor Room, Leiston Abbey house wine with each evening meal, and a theme night – recent examples include an Italian wine-tasting concert and a Greek music night!

There are an abundance of practice pianos across the site together with a fully equipped recording studio. Informal concerts take place in the incredible surroundings of the 14th century Lady Chapel in the grounds, and the Guesten Hall – built into the Abbey ruins.

Personal training sessions to focus posture, performance preparation and well being together with Yoga sessions are offered as part of the programme. Piano sessions are taught in both open classes and one to one slots. Again, tailored to suit all needs.

Now in its 16th year and running every June and October, Pro Corda Adult Piano weekends really do form the perfect place to meet like-minded people, make new friends, have a wonderful time, and indulge a weekend of piano playing / listening away from it all.

And why not try Pro Corda’s specially devised film course for Adult Piano learners to fast track skills. These films can get a beginner adult learner going in a fast tracked way, and also help develop sonority, textural variety, dynamic range, pulse and phrase, stylistic awareness, and so much else with existing pianists (including advanced players.) Used by adult pianists from New Zealand to the US (plus many happy customers now taking the Pro Corda Adult Piano method here in the UK!) the film course can take you to levels of piano playing you never thought possible.

We use a unique improvisation method which is easy to pick up right from the first film. The whole series will open your eyes, ears, and mind to a raft of new pianistic possibilities and re-energize your love for the piano.
