An exciting new Pianoman project for schools began in April 2009. During the first pianoMan programme 2005-2008, Richard visited 191 schools throughout Britain, many in less affluent areas, to give masterclasses for the pupils and an evening public recital. pianoMan was sponsored by Man Group plc during the first phase. From 2011, the new sponsors, Mr & Mrs Harvey McGrath, have extended the scope of the scheme to include scholarship awards for talented state school pianists granting free all-expenses paid lessons with Richard in London and regular places on residential courses held during school holidays.
Richard’s CD recordings and two DVDs on how to play the piano were distributed to the schools as pianoMan gifts. At this point, numerous youngsters, many from poorer backgrounds and deprived areas of the UK, have gone on to the major conservatoires and Oxford and Cambridge Universities.
Richard and his students have featured in an article in the Financial Times magazine ‘How to spend it.’ They discuss the benefits of learning to play the piano to counter stress and strain from busy office life.
