In this event aimed primarily at Year Ten pupils (though also suitable for older and younger year groups), William Howard will perform a selection of short piano works spanning a range of styles from baroque to 21st century.
As he does so, he will discuss the distinctive features of each piece (tonality, textures, basic forms, use of the keyboard, etc.) before inviting comments and questions from the audience.
