Bernstein Piano Masterclass

The Bernstein Piano Masterclass is a unique learning and performance experience for students. 
Entrants perform on a grand piano in front of an acclaimed educator and receive a brief lesson with friendly, encouraging and constructive advice. 
This unique learning experience allows students to run through one of their exam pieces, or simply have a fresh set of eyes to suggest how they could improve their performance. Students also get the chance to hear performances by fellow piano students of a similar age. 
A handful of students from each Masterclass session will be invited to compete in the national Bernstein Piano Competition, held in Melbourne on October 8th, 2017. This event is proudly sponsored by Bernstein Pianos and is one of Australia's longest running piano competitions. Please see for more information.
