Towards Effortless Piano Playing
with Penelope Roskell
Friday 9 March – Sunday 11 March 2018
Course No. 3271
Solo Study Course
This course focuses on repertoire and technique for pianists, and is ideal for those preparing for concerts, competitions, diplomas or auditions. If you find yourself suffering from technical problems, piano related injuries or nerves, physical tension could be the source. Penelope’s approach, including yoga, will help you to develop a more relaxed style of playing, enabling your piano technique to become effortless.
The course is run as a series of masterclasses with plenty of opportunities for discussion and exchange of ideas.
All courses are held at Jackdaws in the village of Great Elm, a small village to the west of Frome in Somerset, approximately 30 minutes drive from Bath. Frome Train station is just 3 miles from Jackdaws with direct trains from Bristol, Bath, Cardiff and London.
