FROM HEALTHY TECHNIQUE TO NATURAL ARTISTRY: UPPER INTERMEDIATE COURSE WITH PENELOPE ROSKELL
This course is for pianists who are interested in exploring a new approach to piano playing, and who would like their playing to feel effortless, be more expressive and avoid tension and injury. Pianists will receive guidance on their current repertoire, as well as more specific advice on any passages they are having difficulty with. Penelope is the UK’s foremost specialist on healthy piano playing, and her book ‘The Complete Pianist:from healthy technique to natural artistry’, is published by Peters Edition in autumn 2019.
This course is designed for people who have reached a grade 6+ standard.
Each day typically starts with a workshop in the Finchcocks on our Steinway in the recital room. In the afternoons, there is time for private practice on one of our beautiful acoustic grand pianos and normally there is time for some individual tuition.
Later in the afternoon, we convene for a masterclass, which involves a little bit of (very relaxed) performance in front of your classmates.
At 7pm on Saturday we have our pre-dinner talk or recital in the main house, which is a chance to relax with a glass of wine and be inspired, before returning to the Coach House for dinner.
