Courses, Workshops and Lessons

The Roskell Academy offers regular courses, workshops and lessons, both in-person and online.

If you would like to receive information about upcoming Roskell Academy courses and workshops, please sign up to the mailing list for the latest news and announcements.


Penelope is available to give consultation lessons to anyone seeking advice regarding injuries, physical tension, repertoire and applications to music colleges as well as preparing for diplomas, concerts or competitions. She will assess your playing and discuss possible ways forward in terms of technique, repertoire or career choices.  She may refer you to specific sections in her book ‘The Complete Pianist’, or suggest further lessons either with herself or a teacher who is qualified in teaching her method.  Pianists with injuries may be referred to the BAPAM pianists’ clinic. 
To discuss one-to-one lessons or consultations with Penelope herself please contact us directly using the form alongside.  
See here for details of recommended teachers who have studied the Roskell approach in depth.
