I was delighted to be invited to chat recently to American musician, promoter and presenter Jack Price. Jack presents his own radio show, where he interviews a plethora of guests related to the Classical music industry. The show is broadcast in the US and various other parts of the world, and I spoke to Jack via phone from my home. This has to be the most convenient radio interview ever! It was also great fun. We spoke about my book, So You Want To Play The Piano? and piano teaching in all its guises. Jack was a concert pianist for many years and so we enjoyed discussing different aspects of piano teaching and piano study. You can view Jack’s copious guests and website here and listen to my interview here.
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.
