Festival Accompanists

  • The festival does not appoint official accompanists, so if you need an accompanist please make sure you make necessary arrangements for a rehearsal and your performance as soon as you have confirmed your entry.

  • See below a list of accompanists or you may use your own. 

  • You must expect to pay a fee to your pianist / accompanist for your festival performance and any rehearsals you arrange.  Please deal direct with your pianist / accompanist and agree all fees and any rehearsal dates with him / her.

  • If you are unable to attend your festival class, do make sure you inform your accompanist, or you may still be charged with the agreed fee.

  • There is only one class in the music festival whereby you can use a backing track, and this is V34 Song from a Disney Film or Musical.

  • Here is our list of accompanists. They are subject to availability so please book early:
