LONDON PIANO MEETUP GROUP
The London Piano Meetup Group provides opportunities for adult amateur pianists in the London area to meet up with like-minded pianists and practice performing in an informal setting. We meet to play for each other – a small audience of fellow piano enthusiasts – every few weeks, and afterwards head to a nearby pub or cafe to socialise and chat about all things piano-related. The group welcomes everyone from beginners to advanced pianists, playing all styles of repertoire, and observers are also welcome at most events for those who don't feel like performing, or to invite friends/relatives along.
The events are an ideal place to practice performing whole pieces, parts of pieces, or ‘works-in-progress’; the group is friendly, supportive and encouraging as everyone appreciates the unique challenges of playing in front of others. Those who have not been to an LPMG event before are particularly welcome.
The LPMG is run by volunteers on a not-for-profit basis; all ticket sales go towards venue hire and running costs.
Admission (and reservation of a performing slot if you wish to perform) is through pre-bought tickets only, we do not sell tickets on the door. The ticketing link will close 24 hours before the event, there are no refunds or transfers on tickets.
