The Thomas Harris International Piano Foundation

Supporting Young Musicians

The Thomas Harris International Piano Foundation (The Foundation) is here to support, advise and encourage you in your career as a musician.  Our Master Classes are open to anyone over the age of 18, on the brink of a performance career, are about to or have graduated from a Music Conservatoire (whatever instrument is played).  Our annual summer Master Classes held at The Steps in Rye, East Sussex, culminate in a concert in the renowned Winchelsea Church, where Thomas performed on a number of occasions.

We also provide opportunities to perform in a wide range of venues, to audiences who appreciate the opportunity of listening to budding talent.  This, in turn, will offer you the chance to develop performance skills in an unpressurised environment, leading to grander venues throughout the UK and internationally.  For the successful applicant, funding is available. 

The Foundation is here to support you. We give you the opportunity to be part of a like-minded community, to network with other musicians and as a port of call if you are struggling with your music career and would like some advice.




We very much look forward to hearing from you if you would like to find out more about The Foundation
