Battersea Piano Festival

Battersea Piano Festival was founded in 2015 and is directed by Liz Giannopoulos (also the founder and director of Encore Music Tuition).


Battersea Piano Festival is open to all junior amateur pianists, regardless of experience. The classes are carefully chosen to ensure a fair platform for all participants. Pianists have the opportunity to play a grand piano, in a semi-formal environment, and hear the performances of their peers. 

Set pieces, own choice and exam repertoire classes are available across four divisions:

  • Non-competitive beginners

  • Early Learners

  • Improving Players

  • Experienced Performers

A panel of respected adjudicators select winners in each class and provide constructive feedback and performance inspiration to the participants. 

After five successful years, Battersea Piano Festival did not run as a live event in 2020 or 2021.
