Friday Competition: Improve Your Theory!

20150703_085650

A Friday often denotes a competition here on my blog, and today is no exception! There are two prizes, and therefore two lucky winners. You will probably be aware of Paul Harris’ very popular series, Improve Your Theory! At present, there are five books in this series (Grades 1 – 5), and they have all appeared in my monthly recommendations.

I have a copy of Grades 1 and 2 to give away. Published by Faber Music, Improve Your Theory! is designed to provide practical help and assistance to all those who desire a straightforward method to study the theory of music. The books are beautifully laid out and are based on Paul’s Simultaneous Learning ideology. You can  purchase them here. If you’re not familiar with these books, this is the perfect opportunity to explore what they have to offer.

As always, leave a comment in the comment box at the end of this post to be in with a chance of winning, and I will announce the winners on Sunday evening (British time).

PS. I hope you like my new look blog?

  2. I like your new look, although I can’t remember what the old one looked like! I have heard of Paul Harris books but not seen them yet 🙂

  3. I am not familiar with this series, and would LOVE to look at them, and since you recommend them, I know I would add them to my students’ piano experiences with me. Thank you for all you do to help piano teachers like me!

  4. It would be wonderful to have these in my library and use with my students. Have a wonderful day!

  5. I’ve used his sight reading books before, and I love them. I didn’t actually know about his theory books, and I’d love to try them. I’ll have to go check them out some time!

  6. Always looking for new resources and this series of books look as if they would be a big asset to my library.

  7. I’ve tried a variety of theory books for students, some better than others. I haven’t looked at these before though, so would be really interested to give them a go. I think it’s so important to get students interested in music theory from the outset, so anything that encourages that gets the thumbs up from me!

  8. I’m returning to piano and theory teaching, after years in the classroom, and currently building up my piano and theory teaching material. I’m really interested in these as I recently enjoyed an inset session given by Paul Harris on sight reading. It’s good to see new material!

  10. Thank you for pointing out this theory series – exactly what I have been looking for to eliminate loose or lost photocopies.

  11. This is the first I’ve seen of these theory books — thanks for bringing them to my/our attention!

  12. New look is great. Very much looking forward to seeing Paul Harris’s new books; his writing is always a favourite with my teaching diploma candidates (as is your blog!)

  13. Music Theory is a subject which I hated in my childhood, but adore after age 16. I would love to have this books! Thank you for possibility!

  14. This is interesting. I am presently use a different series of music. I felt it is a little simple. This coming year, I plan to teach a theory class for all my students. This may be a good theory book series to have since it is graded. Thanks for noticing me about this series! Thanks for the blog too. This is my first time come to you blog.
