Meet the Host, Declan Cosgrove
Declan is a Manchester born musician who spent 10 years struggling with traditional music lessons, until he discovered a new way to play songs on piano, used by Paul McCartney, which doesn’t involve ‘reading music’. Fuelled by a desire to make piano more accessible for others, he spent several years translating this method into a language absolute beginners can instantly understand and developing extra techniques to make piano easily accessible for older students. This new DecPlay method is so effective, it has been awarded a patent. Declan has now helped thousands of students learn piano, from beginners to Oscar winning musicians and has been featured on BBC.
Preparing for the Event
For the best experience, you will need to have Zoom downloaded onto your computer. Please ensure you're connected to broadband/wifi rather than using your mobile phone connection (3G/4G).

What if I can’t make the event?
If a recording’s available for the event, you can still register for it and we will send you an email with a link to a recording shortly after it ends.
Will my camera be on and will I be visible to the other people?
Your camera and microphone does not need to be on for you to enjoy the event. The choice about whether to do this is completely yours.
