In this concentreated full-day seminar Oleg Stepanov, Senior Lecturer in Piano, Queensland Conservatorium, Griffith University, Brisbane, will discuss his approach to developing sound piano technique right from the very earliest stages of learning. Over three sessions, including a two-hour masterclass (from 3:15), he will draw on his vast experience in teaching students of all ages and levels, as well as his heritage in the Russian piano school which is renowned for its warmth of sound and brilliant virtuosity. Oleg believes that the acquisition of a reliable and secure technique is closely linked to the development of musical playing, and in these sessions he will share his approach to the important beginning stages of piano-playing, discussing the fundamental elements that need to be in place early on, before following this through to the intermediate and early advanced stages.

Throughout the sessions, Oleg will share his ideas on appropriate exercises and studies for the various learning stages; he will also include some discussion on repertoire choices and sequencing.

Also in attendance will be the promising young Australian pianist, Ayesha Gough, who has studied with Stepanov for over eight years. A prize-winner at the 2013 Lev Vlassenko Competition and at the 2014 Kerikeri International Piano Competition, Ayesha will demonstrate many of the points discussed in this seminar.

The day will be enclosed by two short solo recitals, the opening one by Oleg, and the closing one by Ayesha Gough. (see separate listings)
