Courses for Teachers
All of Penelope’s courses are relevant to piano teachers who are interested in learning how to teach according to Penelope’s innovative methods.
In 2020, courses of particular interest to piano teachers will be the One-Day Workshop for Pianists with Small Hands and the One-Day Workshop on Technique. The morning is devoted to a general discussion on aspects of teaching, followed by more specific question and answer sessions in the afternoon.
Penelope’s new eight-day course for piano teachers on teaching piano technique will start in autumn 2020.
