Roberts is an inspirational teacher, who brings his musicological learning to bear with brilliantly illuminating effect. I came away from this course with a rich haul of insights. Michael Church, Classical Music Magazine
Paul Roberts’s master classes and public lectures immerse the listeners in a magical world of images and ideas . . . His communicative abilities, whether as performer, writer or teacher, are without equal. Harold Gray, Portland Piano International
Music at Langham House, in the village of Robertsbridge, East Sussex, promises a highly enjoyable and stimulating weekend of music-making in a beautiful setting.
The weekends, led by Paul Roberts, are open to amateur pianists at all levels of proficiency and include a mixture of group teaching (four classes over two days) and individual lessons. Up to six participants can be accommodated either at Langham House or in comfortable accommodation close by. All meals and classes are at Langham House.
Participants can bring whatever repertoire they wish, though it is recommended that one piece should be of sufficient standard to play through to the group. There is ample opportunity for practising.
Participants arrive in time for dinner at 8 on Friday evening, and depart at 5 pm on Sunday. The cost for the weekend is £365, including all tuition, meals, wine, accommodation, and a recital on Saturday evening.
A deposit of £100 reserves a place. Payment can be made by direct bank transfer (details on request by email, below, or tel +44 1580 880627).

About Langham House
Langham House is a Regency house with a varied history: it has seen life as a brewery, a small hotel of dubious respectability, and flourishing ‘rooms’ with tea-gardens attached. It fell into sad decline over the past 50 years until its recent restoration as a family home.
How to get to Robertsbridge
Robertsbridge is a remarkably preserved medieval village in East Sussex, not far from the site of the Battle of Hastings, set in the midst of the High Weald, a designated area of outstanding natural beauty. Robertsbridge Abbey (alas not at all preserved) is of the greatest significance to European music: here keyboard music was written down for the first time.
Robertsbridge Station is within five minutes’ walk, with a direct line to London Bridge, Waterloo East and Charing Cross.
Participants from outside the UK are advised to travel via London, unless arriving at Gatwick, from which there is a direct train to Tonbridge, with a connection to Robertsbridge.
We can advise further on travel arrangements. Those travelling by car will find very easy parking in the village.
