Memorisation Techniques Interview

Here’s a recent interview I gave for another blog site. It’s called called Memorising Music and written by Caroline Wright. I really enjoy writing, talking and teaching memorisation techniques, so I was immediately interested when Caroline kindly asked me to take part.

My publications:

For much more information about how to practice piano repertoire, take a look at my piano course, Play it again: PIANO (published by Schott Music). Covering a huge array of styles and genres, the course features a large collection of progressive, graded piano repertoire from approximately Grade 1 to advanced diploma level, with copious 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.

  1. Thank you for this — I like your attitude about memorizing and especially about teaching it. I have not had much help with this from teachers and it has been a handicap. Any memorizing I’ve done has been based on my own experiments. I’ve played whole recitals and concertos with orchestra on the cello from memory, but performing from memory on the piano is much harder for me, and I’m beginning to doubt I’ll ever be very good at it (though I keep trying). I find that the more I focus on improving my technique, the harder it is for me to memorize, I guess because my attention is too divided. If your book covers this in any way, I will definitely buy it!
