String Duo Coaching

String Duo Coaching is one of our most vital and treasured areas of teaching in the Strings Department. Throughout your UG and PG degree you are allocated to a different staff pianist each year with an evolving number of hours throughout your course. This staff pianist rehearses with you, plays for master classes, performance classes and on occasion even external concerts, and of course for your end of year recital. 

In addition, Daniel Tong (Head of Piano Chamber Music) creates huge numbers of Student Duos each year, pairing up like-minded student pianists with their string counterparts, an enriching and inspiring part of your studentship at RBC. Many students form duos where they go on to play in international competitions, external concerts and much more.
