The Overseas Masters Winter Piano Academy

The Overseas Masters Winter Piano Academy is a course founded in 2010 by former ABRSM scholar, and Malaysian pianist, Bobby Chen. The programme runs every two years and we have supported this since 2014, helping every two years with the auditions and induction programme in Kuala Lumpur. This fantastic residential course is an intensive programme for young pianists across SE Asia, and held in the Menhuin School in Surrey, UK, in December. This is a particular success story of how effectively we can engage with our former ABRSM scholars.
