Adjudicators and Accompanists

The adjudicators are there to hear the performances and provide customised advice to all, from beginners to professional musicians, and to help them know what the next steps can be to improve their performances further.
All our adjudicators are highly experienced performers and teachers. They know what it is like to stand up in front of an audience and pass on their love of music, and how to help others do this more effectively.
We have pleasure in announcing our adjudicators for 2020. They have been selected for their ability both to identify how performance can be polished and to present this in a way to leave the performers keen to put it into practice.
The 2020 adjudicators are:
 Piano : John Byrne
 Strings, Woodwind and Brass: Caroline Diffley
Bios will be available shortly/
Our accompanists this year are David Palmer and Tom Carr, who will be able to play on the top-rated Fazioli piano at Challow Park concert hall.

A platform for musicians and aspiring musicians of all ages to perform and receive expert advice. Registered charity number 274734.
