As many of you know, I held a little competition earlier this week in conjunction with the Pianist Magazine. You can read the article here. The prize was an opportunity to win the Magazine’s new Piano Techniques app. Those who took part were asked to leave an appropriate comment in the comment box at the end of the post, and many thanks to you all (there were twenty-seven comments!), but we could sadly only pick one winner.
The winner was chosen by Pianist magazine and is Diana, who made the excellent comment ‘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.’ Many congratulations to Diana, and I would be grateful if she could send her e-mail address to me, here on my blog.
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.
