Piano Technique Workshop (Beginner & Intermediate)

In this online workshop, Penelope Roskell teaches how to establish strong, musical and healthy foundations in piano technique which will sustain you throughout your musical development.

Based on her book, The Complete Pianist, the workshop is divided into two parts. Part 1 will cover all the most important foundations of piano technique, including sitting posture, hand position, creating a beautiful legato and staccato sound, chords, scales and arpeggios.

Part 2 will show you how to take all the techniques introduced in Part 1 to a more advanced level, and will also cover rotation, voicing and ornaments.

Workshop format

The workshop will follow a practical, interactive format. Therefore, we encourage participants to be at their piano if possible so they can try out exercises during the workshop. There will also be opportunities for questions.

The sessions will be recorded, and all participants will receive a link to download the video. If you are unable to attend the session on the day, you will still be able to watch the video at your convenience.
