The Melbourne-based Team of Pianists has captivated audiences in Australia and overseas for more than twenty years. Acclaimed for artistry and professionalism in its many solo and chamber recitals, concerto performances, CDs and broadcasts, the Team is also committed to encouraging and promoting young musicians through masterclass programmes in metropolitan and regional areas alike. The four partners are Professor Max Cooke OAM, Robert Chamberlain, Darryl Coote and Rohan Murray.

The Team has produced nine CDs covering a wide range of music, including a number of exciting, yet rarely recorded works, as well as two innovative videos and various publications on the art of piano playing and musicianship.

The members of the Team are Artists-In-Residence for the National Trust of Australia (Victoria) at Glenfern, the National Trust‘s Centre for the Arts and Culture, in East St Kilda. Here the Team has also established unique educational programmes including the annual Spring Piano School for primary and secondary school age students (since 2004), professional development events such as International Teachers‘ Seminars (2009 & 2010) and the Autumn Piano Weekend (2013), an annual Piano Marathon at Rippon Lea in late summer, as well as presenting masterclasses by Australian and overseas artists.
