A chance to win PIANIST Magazine’s NEW PIANO TECHNIQUES APP

ipad-black

Those who read this blog regularly will know how I enjoy holding little competitions. Today I’m offering a chance to win a  Piano Techniques app designed especially by Pianist magazine for your iPad.

Pianist magazine, in association with Steinway Hall London, is proud to present its first-ever stand-alone app: Piano Techniques. When you’ve read the articles, watched the lessons, listened to the music, your playing will be better! It doesn’t matter what level you are – there’s something here for beginner through to advanced players.

The app contains some of the best articles from within the pages of Pianist written by its expert pianist teachers. Topics include sight-reading, chords, memorising, starting from scratch, returning to the piano after a long break, fingering, a star interview with Lang Lang and more. You can even watch and listen to Lang Lang perform at the end of the interview. He’s playing the gorgeous Liszt Romance (this piece was featured inside Pianist magazine’s Scores section in the current issue 76).

Aside from the articles, the app boasts over 50 pages of scores of varying styles and levels. That’s 18 full pieces to learn. You can listen to all the pieces first, played by Pianist’s house pianist Chenyin Li. Then there are some great videos lessons on some of the most important keyboard techniques – there’s nothing like watching the professionals demonstrate at the keyboard, as you well know. Talking of videos, you can watch also a beautifully crafted film on the making of Steinway’s limited edition Arabesque piano designed by Dakota Jackson. Just like Pianist, the Piano Techniques app is aimed at helping you improve.

Download it today at the App Store on your iPad and watch your playing evolve! All you need to do to be in with a chance of winning, is leave a comment in the comment box below and the winner will be selected on Monday 17th February. Good luck!

  1. Looks like an extremely valuable source of information. My case for getting my own ipad instead of pinching my husbands has just got even stronger! A little shop in half term I think. Thank you pianist magazine! x

  2. Just love the very informative pianist magazine I incorporate a lot of its wisdom and tips into my piano lessons. Have subscribed to it here in New Zealand since it was first published.

  3. Pianist magazine is my piano teacher right now! Couldn’t do without my bimonthly dose of beginner/intermediate sheet music, tips and lessons. I bet the app is very useful too.

  4. For me, Pianist magazine is a must have – it is so comprehensive and keeps me informed and up to date with my approach to the piano and to teaching. Thank you Melanie for this chance to win the Piano Techniques app!

  5. Wow. Winning this app would be very helpful! Even as a teacher, there’s always room to learn more and ways to play better, and seeing videos and reading articles would definitely help with that! Thanks for this site and chances at learning more as a musician.

  6. Great magazine with my favourite icon, Andras Schiff!! I’d love to win the Piano Techniques app. Thanks for the giveaway!!

  7. Trying to re-kindle my piano playing from 40 years ago and need all the help I can get!- the app sounds great so would love to win it please – thanks for offering it here.

  8. I hope to win the app as I am teaching piano part time now and feel that it’s very important to continue improving my techniques to further help my students. :)

  9. Looks great, but can comment only after using it. Any way I believe the technique cannot be learnt by reading alone, it requires careful observation and correction. Let see who comes up with this idea of providing learning support to beginner by observing playing style and providing corrections. A 2nd method would be to provide playing style of different patterns, chords, arpeggios, closed hand, open hand etc.
