In coordination with the solo-singing course there will also be a course on accompaniment, where a pianist will be given guidance and a chance to serve as a partner to one of the singers. There will be no course fee, as the pianists are essentially working throughout the course. You may apply to be an accompanist even if you have no singer as a partner.

The accompaniment course is primarily for those studying the piano professionally, or for young professionals in the field.
