Weekend Competition

Faber Music

It’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!


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.

    Either of these would be a welcome addition to my music library.

  3. 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.

  4. Rachel says:

  8. 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 😉

  9. Susan McCabe says:

    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.

    ‘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…!
