I went to this event.  It changed my piano playing forever.  I was preparing for my Grade 8 and would have failed had Michael Stembridge-Montavont not sorted out my technique, enabling me not only to play my exam pieces, but subsequently to perform them in public.  Michael, and the Cortot Technique passed to him by Jean Micault,cannot be lauded enough.  The latter, another absolute gentleman, is still going strong and has his own Facebook page!
