Young Musicians & Schools Outreach
As well as our regular concert series, Howdenshire Music is also committed to providing performance opportunities for talented young musicians in our area. We have a wonderful grand piano available in Howden Minster for local young musicians to use for performance and recording projects.
If you would like to be involved in one of our future young musicians events, or to arrange a session to use our grand piano, please get in touch.
Howdenshire Music also works with local schools to present outreach events, in which professional classical musicians give interactive, fun mini-concerts and musical Q&A sessions for local schoolchildren. If you would like to find out more, please get in touch.

Young Musicians Lunchtime Concert: Hull Piano School
Featuring performances by the talented students from Hull Piano School.
Hull Piano School helps individuals of all ages excel and enjoy playing the piano. The School's director, Lester Hough, studied under the eminent Oxford piano teacher Vincent Packford, a pupil of Harold Craxton. He excelled in composition and piano performance at the University of Hull where he was awarded a BMus (Hons) and qualified as a teacher. He has continued to develop his skills as a teacher, composer and performer through a varied career which always included private piano teaching.
The programme included music by Mozart, Beethoven, Czerny, Chopin and Rachmaninov.
