As many of you will know, my five piano pieces, Digressions, were published recently by EVC Music Publications, and publisher/composer Elena Cobb is very kindly running a fun competition this weekend on her own Facebook forum, focusing on one of the pieces. To take part, simply join Elena’s publishing discussion forum (click here) and download my piece, Karma (the third of the set), then video either yourself or a pupil playing the piece (which can easily be done using your phone etc.) and upload the performance to the forum.
The prize is £25, and of course the opportunity to appear as part of Elena’s increasingly popular forum. It has been wonderful watching and listening to the entries so far – they are all excellent, beautifully played and so different too, as I’m sure you will agree – you can hear them by clicking on the five links below. I’m delighted my pieces are being performed and enjoyed; Digressions have received some great reviews on Amazon, and many lovely comments from teachers and students.
Fortunately, neither myself or Elena are judging this competition! The winner will be decided by you; the video with the most ‘likes’ (on the Facebook forum as opposed to the YouTube videos) will win. The closing date is Monday 13th July. So please get ‘liking’!
By joining Elena’s publishing discussion forum, you’ll be able to keep up to date with our events, new piano compositions and composers, plus many free offers too. Meanwhile, over to Ksenija, Jana, Lorraine, Janelle and Pierre-Emmanuel – thank you all for playing my piece.
Please note; performers appear here in the order their videos were originally posted on the forum.

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.
