Your Practising Questions Answered! – Practising the Piano

Do you have a question about practising? Or are you struggling with a particular part of a piece and are not sure how to go about practising it?

In our monthly practice clinics, Graham Fitch answers practising-related questions submitted in advance by online academy subscribers (please see further details below on how to submit your questions). The videos are pre-recorded and then published on our blog, Facebook page and YouTube channel.

Frequently Asked Questions

I’m a subscriber to the Online Academy, how do I submit a question?

If you are a subscriber then you will receive an email with a link to a form which you can use to submit your question (please make sure that you are signed-up to receive emails from us!). You can also access this link on your dashboard by signing into your account (it’s listed under “Subscription benefits”).

Please note that to allow sufficient time for preparation, submissions will be closed two weeks before each event. We are also unable to accept questions that aren’t submitted via this form.

Unfortunately we can’t guarantee that we will respond to every question directly, but we will review all of the submissions and endeavour to cover as many as possible either in this event or in a subsequent one.

I’m not a subscriber, can I still participate?

Although question submission is only available to our Online Academy subscribers, we make the recordings available for viewing on on our blog, Facebook page and YouTube channel. Therefore you do not need to be a subscriber to watch the practice clinic videos.

How do I view videos of past clinics?

Recordings of past practice clinics are available to watch on our blog, Facebook page or our YouTube channel.

Do the events still take place on Facebook live?

From June 2023 we will no longer be broadcasting the clinics live on Facebook and will be pre-recording and then publishing them towards the middle of each month. If you would like to join a live event then please do have a look at our events programme!

I’m not on Facebook, how do I view the session?

That’s no problem at all! We also publish the recordings of the sessions on on our blog and YouTube channel in addition to Facebook (you can also watch recordings of previous events there too!).

I missed the cut-off for a session, how do I submit my question?

Once the submissions for a specific session are closed, we will update the links to give access to the form for the next session. Therefore you will be able to submit your question for the next available session (these are usually scheduled on a monthly basis).

How do I get updates and notifications of future dates?
