Creating a Beautiful Piano Sound

20 Feb 2021 @ 15:00 UTC

A workshop on tone production and cantabile playing

Have you ever been told that your forte sound was harsh, or that your pianissimo doesn’t project? Using exercises from her book The Complete Pianist, Penelope Roskell will talk you through the principles of tone production and show you how to achieve a richer and more beautiful sound at the piano. 

Topics covered in this online workshop include: 

  • Principles behind tone production
  • How to avoid percussive sounds
  • A demonstration of Penelope’s renowned “Parachute touch”
  • Exercises for projecting pianissimo sound and achieving glorious forte chords

This workshop will be suitable for pianists of all levels and of interest to piano teachers. The session will be recorded and all participants will receive a link to download the video, worksheets and the accompanying presentation. Therefore, if you are unable to attend on the day, you will still be able to watch the video at your convenience thereafter.
