Some reviews for the Penelope’s  London Piano Courses:


"It was an eye-opening experience to attend Penelope’s master course. It was well organised and designed thoughtfully with generous teaching from various aspects tailored to each individual’s needs, yet useful for everybody in a warm atmosphere. I will definitely attend again. It was amazing!" T.N (Japan)

 “The final concert was magical. It was a special challenge to try and take what you'd taught in the course sessions straight into a performance, but all the participants achieved that and were inspired to play at their best”.

 “I liked the course 100%. The venue was excellent and I achieved even more than I had hoped” (C.B., Rumania)
