I have set up a YouTube channel. Yes, I know it’s brave to vlog and I’m still not used to viewing myself on camera! However I wanted to help many of you who have remarked that you would like to learn to play the piano but need some advice before you start.
My channel is called the Piano Education Project and I’ll be vlogging about all aspects of piano playing. I will also be interviewing pianists and other artists too, asking them about their experiences and what inspired them to start learning. I’ll be teaching the piano here as well enabling you to witness student progress and understand what is required from a piano teacher for successful piano study. I do hope you will join me over the coming weeks and months.
I am hoping to reach many potential piano students so that I can offer a few tips about where to begin.
For much more information about how to practice piano repertoire, take a look at my two-book piano course, Play it again: PIANO (Schott). Covering a huge array of styles and genres, 49 progressive pieces from approximately Grade 1 – 8 level are featured, with at least two pages of practice tips for every piece. A convenient and beneficial course for students of any age, with or without a teacher, and it can also be used alongside piano examination syllabuses too.
