This weekend’s competition features a new collection of sight-reading books written by Lindsey Berwin and published by Kevin Mayhew. Funkey! is designed to encourage students to sight-read regularly, by making the process fun and pleasurable. It will also help assist knowledge of keys, rhythmic awareness, and the ability to play fluently. The set comprises five graded levels, with a complete mix of styles from folk music and nursery rhymes to rock and swing. There is a helpful audio CD with backing tracks too.
I have the first three books to giveaway, so please leave your comment in the comment box after this post to be in with a chance of winning. I will announce three winners on Sunday evening (British time).

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.
