James Rhodes is coming to the Bromsgrove Artrix

If you haven’t seen him, James Rhodes is a top class concert pianist. He’s performing a musical evening of Chopin in the intimate Bromsgrove Artrix on Friday 20th February 2015 at 7:30 pm.

This is a real treat! James not only performs at the highest standard, he engages with the audience, often giving anecdotes about  composers’ lives. This is a must see!

Adult Social Concert

Many thanks to Julia, Jessica, Sue, Trevor, Sam, Stephen and Wayne who all played beautifully at the annual adult social concert last night. The music ranged from Bach to Einaudi and much fun was had by all!

Golden Rules for Good Practice

  • Aim for a short practice every day. This is much better than a long practice every few days.
  • Think of practice like sports training. Start by warming up with some scales or exercises, then work on your pieces, and finish (warm down) with a favourite piece.
  • Approach your practice session ready to learn. Think about what you are doing and concentrate as you play.
