Presenter Biography

John Human is a pianist with a passion for exploring the extraordinarily diverse capabilities of the instrument as widely as possible He plays the standard classical repertoire as well as jazz, rock, pop and other improvised genres, and has performed widely across the UK. He studied in Cambridge with Phyllis Palmer, a student of Medner , Mattay, Serkin, and Bolet, and then at the Guildhall with Elizabeth Newson.


Central to his philosophy is that composing, performing and improvising are all skills that musicians should seek to develop, and that separating them is a barrier to creative development. As a teacher he seeks always to embed the technical fundamentals which enable students to master repertoire of their choice. His focus is always on how to play rather than what to play, as learning is always enhanced if students are inspired by the music they are playing. He has examined for 20 years, initially as a keyboard specialist for Guildhall, and then with Trinity on both the Classical and Rock and Pop panels throughout the world, and has worked on syllabus development and other elements of the examination process.


In the presentation John will demonstrate how pieces in the new Trinity Piano Syllabus can be used to work at specific elements of technique which are essential in establishing command of the instrument, and also perform some of the wonderful music that is offered.
