Due to the current unpredictable pandemic situation, we are not scheduling institutes at the moment. Alan Fraser generally visits Sevenoaks once every couple of years. Please register for our newsletter to receive updates on scheduling as they arise.
Pamoja Hall at The Space in Sevenoaks School, is a state of the art concert hall with a studio off to the side that is the perfect setting for an Alan Fraser Institute. This January 15 Alan will give a one-day master class open to Sevenoaks School students only. The following three days he will be teaching in London. Watch this space for an eventual Alan Fraser Institute at Sevenoaks.
Many relatively inexperienced pianists hesitate to attend an institute, feeling they are not good enough or not well-enough prepared. However, Alan Fraser insists that we are all here to learn and this approach can help all of us, no matter whether our program is well-prepared or in a shambles. Thus the Institute really is open to all interested pianists:
There is no limit to improvement!
