It’s Friday, and therefore time for another weekend competition. Today’s prize features several copies of Get Set! Piano which is a tutor (or method) book series published by Bloomsbury and written by Heather Hammond and Karen Marshall.
Tutor Book 1 is accompanied by Pieces Book 1, and there is Tutor Book 2 and Pieces Book 2 as well (I’ve a copy of each, therefore two lucky readers will receive either both Tutor and Pieces Book 1 or 2), and this combination provides lots of material for beginners. Posture, hand positions and improvisation with teacher are highlighted, as well as writing exercises and simple, but effective illustrations. The thumb is introduced sparingly, and little tunes are slowly incorporated.
As usual, all you need to do is leave a comment in the comment box at the end of this post, and Heather Hammond and I will select two winners on Sunday evening (British time).
Melanie Spanswick has written and published a wide range of courses, anthologies, examination syllabuses, and text books, including Play it again: PIANO (published by Schott Music). This best-selling graded, progressive piano course contains a large selection of repertoire featuring a huge array of styles and genres, with copious practice tips and suggestions for every piece.
