The Musical World of the Piano

Westholme welcomes Martin Roscoe to the Croston Theatre

Yesterday saw many of us at Westholme gain a wonderful insight into the musical world of the Piano. It began with an afternoon Masterclass, hosted by friend of Westholme and renowned Pianist, Martin Roscoe. Some of our talented pianists within school were given the opportunity to play for Martin and gained valuable advice from him – what a fabulous experience!

Soon after, we were also delighted to welcome Piano Tuner, Marianne Bailey to school, who, alongside School Piano Teacher, Mr Topping, presented a talk on the function and history of the piano. Visitors to the Music Centre found the talk to be extremely informative.

Finally, in the Croston Theatre last night, Martin once again took to the stage to play his annual Piano Recital for the Westholme audience. This forms part of the Ribble Valley International Piano Week series. The Westholme Senior and Tour Choirs performed a concert prelude to the Recital and it was a fantastic evening of musical entertainment. Thank you to Martin for a wonderful concert.
