About the University of Southampton Piano Society (Pianosoc):

We are a friendly society for all people interested in listening to or performing piano of any genre, at any level. We aim to provide an opportunity for student pianists to get together and play what is otherwise typically thought of as a solo instrument.

Many students may not have access to a piano of their own while at Southampton - our weekly jam sessions allow pianists access to a real piano when they might not otherwise get a chance to play. Our jam sessions are not only an opportunity to play the piano but also a space for the discussion and appreciation of piano music. Anyone is welcome - even if you've never played the piano before we encourage you to come and listen and/or chat.

We also organise one-on-one and group lessons - beginners can sign up for piano tuition whereas experienced pianists can sign up to teach other students.

Our activities:

  • Weekly jam sessions
    • Every Monday, 20:00, in 06/1077 (Nuffield Theatre)
    • Everyone can performing any piano piece - drop in to chat or just listen is fine too!
  • One-to-one and group lessons
    • We offer the opportunity to take part in one-on-one piano lessons, either as a student or a teacher.
    • To sign up, come along to one of the Jam sessions.
  • Organised Trips
    • We are organising a trip to Warsaw, Poland to see the 18th International Chopin Piano Competition. It will be from 9 to 11th October 2021. More details in Facebook.
