Royal Academy of Music – Accordion Master Class with Matti Rantenen – 22nd April 2016 10.00 to 17.00 (Lunch:13.00-14.00) A perfect opportunity for teachers, students and all accordionists to see some of the world’s leading accordion teachers work with the accordion students at the Royal Academy of Music. The Royal Academy itself has a group of students who play to a very high standard under the regular tutelage of our own professor of accordion, Owen Murray. It’s always incredibly interesting and informative to watch the professors from the best music conservatoires in the world come and work with these students at a high level and trying out different approaches and ideas on pieces they are working on. Last month we saw Professor Raimondas Sviackevicius from Lithuania work with the students. This month is is the turn of Professor Matti Rantanen from the Sibelius Academy in Finland a well known centre of musical excellence that has a thriving accordion department. Don’t miss it.
