With the latest advisories and safety measures announced today at 4pm by Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong, more and more piano teachers are likely to conduct their piano lessons online.

Most workplaces will be closed from next Tuesday (April 7) and all schools will move to full home-based learning a day later, as Singapore puts in place a "circuit breaker" to pre-empt escalating coronavirus infections, said Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong.

Most workplaces will be closed from next Tuesday (April 7) and all schools will move to full home-based learning a day later, as Singapore puts in place a "circuit breaker" to pre-empt escalating coronavirus infections, said Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong.

"First, stay at home, as much as possible."

"Second, avoid socialising with others beyond your own household," he said, adding that people should avoid visiting even their extended families who are not staying with them, especially if they are elderly or vulnerable."

"Third, people should go out only to do essential things."

"The spirit of these measures is to get all of us to minimise physical contact," he said. "If we don't go out, if we avoid contact with others, then the virus won't be able to spread. It is as simple as that."

I am sad to share with you that I need to cancel my remaining solo tour dates in Europe.

Unfortunately, due to the current climate of uncertainty, and related logistical challenges, it is not possible for me to continue the tour – indeed six of my concerts have already been cancelled by venues who are having to respond to various governmental guidelines.

This new recital program is very close to my heart, and I will work on finding opportunities to share it with my fans in Europe sometime in the future. I

’m sending love and healing energy to everyone affected by the Coronavirus and other illnesses in Europe and across the globe, including in my home country of China.

Take care of yourselves, and each other. - Yuja

The Coronavirus Hasn’t Slowed Classical Music - The New York Times. As closures give way to a deluge of live streams, performances have never been more accessible.

In-person performances have been replaced by a deluge of digital ones — live streams and recently unlocked archive recordings — that have made for a calendar hardly less busy than before concert halls closed.

In the past week alone, I’ve been able to watch older performances I missed; ones I had hoped to travel for this spring; ones that would otherwise seem unfathomable, like the pianist Maria João Pires coming out of retirement. If anything, I’m taking in more music than before; the only difference is that now I can be in multiple places — or at least multiple browser tabs — at once.

How to continue your piano lessons during the Coronavirus outbreak has become the biggest question for private piano teachers and music students for the last few days.

While we have closely been following updates from Public Health England and the UK Government, there is little advice on the field of private music lessons due to the extraordinary nature of its swift spread.

Due to the proximity between pupil and tutor during private piano teaching, most of us have become worried about how the Covid-19 current situation can affect your one-to-one piano lessons in the immediate future.

For the foreseeable future Hampstead Piano Academy will remain open as usual and will also be operating via online piano lessons.

With the likely scenario of parents and children having to stay at home, we are keen to recommend a temporary period of video call lessons from the comfort of your home.

But until bars and restaurant dining rooms are allowed to open again, Kite won’t be tickling the ivories. He’s sad. But he gets it.

“I think closing the bars and restaurants in Denver, per our mayor, is the only way that this virus thing is going to level out,” he said.

Kite said this is the first time in its 86-year history that The Ship Tavern has closed.

The idea was to highlight the instrument through events, lectures, masterclasses, etc. and to involve performers, manufacturers, tuners, and piano lovers around the world. A standard piano has 88 keys so he chose to hold the festival on the 88th day of the year.

The inaugural Piano Day 2015 was on 29th March. It is held on that date every year, save for when there is a leap year. So in 2020, it is on the 28th.

Unlike a normal concert or sporting fixture, Piano Day can’t just be delayed until later in the year. German composer and What Hi-Fi? favourite Nils Frahm designed the worldwide event to be celebrated on the 88th day of each year, to represent the number of keys on a piano.

And it’s been growing each year. We’ve picked out some of the best Piano Day live streams that are still happening across the weekend, interspersed with some gorgeous piano performances to whet your appetite.
