If you are looking for an accompanist, you can contact any of these pianists to make your own private arrangements for rehearsal times and for payment.

We are delighted that Brighton & Hove Soiree Rotary Club has made a fund available that enables Springboard to offer a number of discretionary subsidies to those for whom the cost of paying for an accompanist presents difficulties. Application is by email only to the Springboard Administrator. Please state your need and include a supporting statement from the performer’s instrumental teacher by 31 January 2018.

Accompanists – please make sure that you are at the High School in good time for the start of the Class you are playing in.
