Trade Stand at EPTA Conference, September 2005

Spartan Press exhibited at the European Piano Teachers Association Conference at the Royal Northern College of Music this autumn. Other publishers present included Faber, Alfred, LCM and Kate Dixon's Musical Postcard Project. Two local dealers were also there: Dawsons and Forsyths.

The programme for the delagates was absolutely teaming with recitals, masterclasses, discussions and more... 58 events in all over only 3½ days! There were many Highlights - too many to mention, but they included Elias Davidsson's demonstration of his piano teaching material from Iceland, Recitals by Nikolai Tokarev (a RNCM student from Russian) and Joanna MacGregor (Faber), and Masterclasses from Mark Ray (RNCM) and William Fong (RAM) with pupils form the Nanyang Academy of Fine Arts in Singapore.
