Weekend Competition

Faber MusicIt’s a Friday and therefore time for a weekend competition. I have two books to giveaway to two lucky readers; Easy Jazzin About The Year and Mindfulness, the piano collection, both published by Faber Music.

Easy Jazzin About The Year is the latest book by Pam Wedgwood, and is part of her extremely popular series, Jazzin About. It is intended for those of Grade 1-2 (elementary) level and contains a fun selection of original and favourite tunes perfect  for celebrating various ‘occasions’ throughout the year, such as Halloween, Christmas and Bonfire Night. It comes with a useful CD too.

Mindfulness, the piano collection is a delightful anthology of famous and less known pieces for those of around intermediate to advanced level (Grades 6-8), all designed to help you relax, unwind and practice the art of mindfulness. Works include pieces by Satie, Chopin, Ravel, Schumann, Beethoven, Einaudi, Goodall and Frahm.

I have one copy of each book, so please leave your comment in the comment box at the end of this post to be in with a chance of winning. I will select the winners on Sunday evening (British time). Good Luck!

If you would like to find out more or purchase these books you can do so here and here.

My publications:

For much more information about how to practice piano repertoire, take a look at my piano course, Play it again: PIANO (published by Schott Music). Covering a huge array of styles and genres, the course features a large collection of progressive, graded piano repertoire from approximately Grade 1 to advanced diploma level, with copious 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.

You can find out more about my other piano publications and compositions here.

  1. As have always been a big Jazzing About fan , as finds it inspires so many pupils would love to win this and to discover a new music book , with MindfulNess which would appeal to a lot of my older returners as well as the younger students.

  2. Ooh, both of these sound fab – would love to look at Jazzing About with my daughter, but could also quite happily shoo all my little monkeys away from the piano to indulge in a dose of Mindfulness 😉

  3. Minfulness is what I need! Didnt realise GCSEs would be so stressful – particularly when you are not sitting them yourself! 3 boys close together in age what was I thinking? GCSE’s and A levels for next 5 years! So please bring me some calm.

  4. Totally intrigued by the Mindfulness collection for myself as I am currently practicing to be mindful. Love Pam Wedgwood and Jazz so this would be a fantastic collection to add to my studio.

  5. ‘Mindfulness’ is at the top of my wish list, as a gift to myself more than anything, and I will be adding Pam’s new book to my collection as a matter of course – but how lovely it would be to win them both…!

  6. Hi Melanie, I really enjoy your weekend competition freebies. The Jazzin’ About caught my eye. It would be great to win it. I think it may be a useful series that I can benefit from knowing. Wish me luck. Take care.

  7. I’d love to win these, just in middle of my music GCSE at the moment and loving my piano and ALL things music 😍

  8. Fantastic. I’m currently looking at links between mindfulness practice and music. For example, using scales as a form of meditation? Or improvisation and learning using mindfulness techniques? Would love these!

  9. I’d love to win Jazzin’ About and inspire my students with something a little different. Mindfulness sounds like a beautiful collection.

  10. I wasn’t going to enter, as I was lucky to win a book a couple of weeks ago. However, I’ve given in to temptation!
