The Dillington Piano Weekend will be a great opportunity for pianists to enjoy the beautiful surroundings of Dillington House and grounds in South Somerset while developing their piano skills.
The weekend will consist of workshops, masterclasses and concerts and there will be the opportunity for those who wish to have further one-to-one lessons with the tutors and take part in informal concerts.
Concert pianist, composer, adjudicator, teacher and writer Mark Tanner will be leading the weekend. Mark’s performing and academic work takes him regularly to all five continents and he has given solo recitals at Wigmore Hall, South Bank Centre and St John’s Smith Square.
Mark will be joined by Jonathan Delbridge who is based in South Somerset but performs at venues throughout the UK from the Royal Albert Hall to York Minster and Norwich Cathedral. Jonathan has over 20 years’ experience teaching piano and running workshops. Many pupils have gone on to develop their own careers in music.
Residential Fees From: £348. Non Residential: £233
Jonathan is passionate about sharing the music he loves with others and regularly performs at venues of all sizes throughout the UK. His varied and creative concert programmes have been enjoyed by audiences from the magnificent Royal Albert Hall and York Minster to more intimate settings such as his own village church in Somerset.
In 2016 Jonathan formed the South Somerset Community Choir which has now grown to over 60 members who sing a wide variety of music from show tunes to popular songs and jazz standards. Jonathan also directs the Ilminster Belles ladies choir and Mosaica who are a smaller choir singing mostly unaccompanied choral music.
