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.

This Saturday marks Piano Day 2020, a celebration of the most versatile and beloved instrument in the world, and, while scores of events have had to be cancelled due to the Coronavirus pandemic, there are still some that you can watch live streamed online.

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.

Dr. John Mortensen suggest five ideas for practicing the piano in time of global pandemic.

1. Play easy/intermediate pieces to "close the loop".
2. Record yourself and make a list you're bad at.
3. Go after a technical deficiency.
4. Listen to non-piano music to gain a perspective on what the piano is good at and not so good at.
5. Learn the Art of Partimento

Following COVID-19 measures announced by the Ministry of Health as of 24 March 2020 regarding events and limiting group sizes to 10 or fewer, we will unfortunately be closing all Conservatory activity from public access for the rest of the concert season at least until further notice.

We need to do this to prioritise the safety of our students, staff and audience members, while continuing to deliver our curriculum and programming as fully as is sensible.

As such, all concerts and events have been cancelled, postponed or made internal-only. While internal-only events will still take place, they will now be open only to the YST students and faculty/jury members who are taking part in the respective classes, assessments or competition, with no public audience.

Senior Recitals will be open to the jury panel only, but they will also be live-streamed on our Youtube channel (more details to be announced). Click below to visit our channel and check out some past performances and highlights as well!

We hope to be back bringing you more great music in person soon. Thank you for your kind understanding and continued (if more virtual) support during these challenging times. Please take care and keep well!

New research from the British Academy of Sound Therapy (BAST) has shown there is a common dosage for music and revealed how long an individual needs to listen to it for a therapeutic effect to be experienced.

In recent years, psychologists have proven that music can have a positive effect on our health, so researchers at BAST were keen to discover whether it would be possible to prescribe music to help us with specific mood states.

Dear all,

It is very unclear as of now, because the reason for all centre-based tuition and enrichment classes to be suspended is to reduce the intermingling of students from different schools.
However,

1) Our student base is 99% working adults. There is no intermingling of students from different schools.

2) At any one time, there are less than 10 people at each level of our school as well. Probably less than 6 on average for the past recent weeks.

3) All lessons are 100% (1to1) No group classes
And of course, we have already been implementing temperature taking, wearing of mask, wiping of all music instruments with alcohol wipes (70% Isopropylalcohol, not wet towels) and using of hand sanitizers.

We will only do exactly what the government wants us to do. As of now, its very vague. We hope to have an official answer from MOH by tomorrow 2359hours 26 March 2020.
