Please note that we do our best to keep this calendar up-to-date but with so much going on at Claremont, we occasionally drop the ball. It’s unlikely for example that we’ll be quick enough to change the timetable if a tutor cancels at short notice. If you want to be certain about a class running, please call us! Tel: 020 7837 3402. Please also note that tickets bought online for our classes are non-refundable, for that day/class class only, and cannot be used for a different day or carried forward to another class!

About the event
Introducing this week’s performer…
Yuanwei Ping (Pianist)
Yuanwei is an RCM studentship holder, working towards his PhD degree in the Royal College of Music. In 2017 Yuanwei obtained his Master of Performance degree from the Royal College of Music and the Artist Diploma in Piano Performance in the following year, under the guidance of Norma Fisher and Ashley Wass. Yuanwei is a Leverhulme Arts Scholar and was supported by Ms Jean Cater and Professor Gordon Marshall during his Artist Diploma study at the Royal College of Music. In 2019 Yuanwei obtained his Master of Arts in Musicology degree from the Royal Birmingham Conservatoire.
Yuanwei was 16 years old when he took his first professional piano lessons with professor Jian Feng at the Tianjin Conservatory of Music, China. He started on the undergraduate programme at the Hogeschool voor de Kunsten Utrecht in the Netherlands studying with Alan Weiss, receiving maximum honours in his final exam in 2015. As a pianist, Yuanwei has given concerts in The Netherlands, Belgium, Spain, UK, USA, and China over the past ten years. Following an audition in 2012 at the Utrecht Conservatory, Yuanwei played for Maestro Arcadi Volodos who praised him as ‘a very fine young pianist’ after the masterclass. Yuanwei has also studied intermittently with Pascal Devoyon, Julian Jacobson, Anton Kuerti, Daniel Rivera, Akiko Ebi and Cheng-Zong Yin.
When he was younger, Yuanwei studied the Suo’Na (a Chinese folk instrument) and jazz percussion with his father. In recent years Yuanwei has also enjoyed a career as a freelance photographer.
