Two of WAIS’s top piano pupils, J. Jiang (Yr 10) and A. Qiu (Pre A) benefitted from an inspiring and highly informative online masterclass from the renowned British pianist Andrew Wilde. Mr Wilde is a prizewinner of many top international piano competitions, including Van Cliburn International Piano Competition in 1985, and has performed with the world’s top orchestras, including Halle Orchestra, London Mozart Players, London Philharmonic Orchestra, Royal Liverpool Philharmonic, and Royal Philharmonic Orchestra.

The two pupils were put through their paces, learning about pedalling, dynamic control and the different facets of expressive playing. Mr Wilde was extremely impressed by the two young pianists; he was especially complementary about their responsiveness to his instructions and suggestions. Both pupils felt hugely inspired, keen to put Mr Wilde’s suggestions into practice!
