Workshop Piano
Roberto Prosseda
Study pathway

What are the principles of the music that are the basis of interpretation?
How can you develop your own personal reading of a piece, starting with an informed initial reading of the composition?
How can your performance be personal, while at the same time respecting the instructions given by the composer?

These are questions that all musicians ask themselves in their daily work. But they rarely find an answer that satisfies them. There is a commonly-held belief that interpretation is a completely inexplicable phenomenon, springing from the musical intuition and instincts of each individual musician, the “ispiration” of legend. Yet great professional pianists know very well that you can only arrive at a vision of music that is personal and satisfying through long, deep study of the semantic processes of the music and of the principles that underlie the structure of any composition.

In this course students will learn an approach to the reading of musical texts that is scientific and deeply analytical. This approach is based on the physical principles that inform music, as well as on historical documentation that allows an historically informed and contextualised reading of musical notation, from the 18th century to the present day.


Expression and interpretation of music  is the first module of Roberto Prosseda’s interactive workshop for pianists but can be attended as a single course. Like all the modules in the Workshop it is held over two months and consists of:

  • Six meetings online online of two hours each. The lessons will be recorded on video and will be available to students.
  • Intensive 12-hour workshop in person, held at the Accademia di Musica, where Prosseda will accompany his teaching with frequent demonstrations on the piano and the students will have the opportunity to put into practice the principles they have learnt.
  • One hour of individual guidance individuale.
  • Online sharing of materials distributed, video recordings of demonstrations, and scores.



Roberto Prosseda’s interactive workshop is intended for all pianists wishing to further develop their piano technique and culture, perhaps with a view to a career in teaching or as a concert performer, and who wish to develop greater awareness of how to make music on a piano.
