“Piano lovers who come together to share their passion and love of all things Piano.”
London Piano Circle is a members‘ organisation of amateur pianists.
We are a group of friendly amateur piano enthusiasts who get together to play the piano either in members’ homes, concerts or in masterclass.
Managed by volunteers Gillian Warnell and Janice Shersby, LPC was originally founded in June 1994 by Andrew Cockburn and Elizabeth Gundrey.
Membership is by payment of annual £30 fee. This enables you to participate in the events detailed in the website, along with our home group meetings, normally held monthly, free from any other additional charge OR cost. Our events typically may include two workshops and four seasonal concerts a year.
Former workshop tutors have included Charles Owen, Philip Fowke, Graham Fitch, Frank Wibaut and Philip Smith to name a few.
Newsletters are issued three times a year, in September, December and May.

Opportunities for a performance place in masterclasses can be popular and occasionally performance opportunities may have to be done on a rotation basis taking into account when you last played. Every effort will be made to ensure All performance requests to play at concerts is granted, ensuring performance opportunities for those that wish to play. Virtuosity of the repertoire offered is not a factor at all and duets are most welcome.
