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 offer introductory sight reading lessons to give beginners the tools needed to start practicing the piano, and we also advise students on where to find pianos so they can pratice.

Our activities:

  • Weekly jam sessions
    • Every Friday, 19:00 to 21:00 in 06/1077. Please feel free to join and leave at any point during the sessions.
    • Everyone can perform any piano piece - dropping in to chat or to just listen is fine too! These are informal sessions just for relaxing, practicing and/or performing.
  • Group lessons
    • Every Friday, 18:00 to 19:00 in 06/1077.
    • We offer an introduction into sight reading for those who are interested in learning the Piano.
  • Organised Trips
    • In the past we have organised a trip to Warsaw, Poland to the 18th International Chopin Piano Competition in 2021.
