Today’s competition features three Schott publications;
Russian Folk tunes comprises a set of traditional tunes arranged and played by bandoneonist, composer and arranger Julian Rowlands. There are 23 pieces in the volume, intended for approximately intermediate to advanced players.
Piano Piccolo which contains 111 easy original piano pieces compiled by German composer, teacher and arranger Hans-Günter Heumann. Great for elementary students who desire a broader repertoire.
Blues, Boogie and Gospel Collection by British composer and jazz pianist Tim Richards. This book contains 13 original pieces plus two arrangements as well as copious practice and performance notes.
As always, for a chance to win one of these publications, please leave your comments in the comment box at the end of this post, and I will announce the three winners on Sunday evening (British time), here on the blog. 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.

All 3 look different and interesting, I would be happy to try any one of them out.
Thank you for bringing these books to our attention! I am particularly interested in trying Tim Richards’ book, his books on jazz piano are the best I’ve seen.
These look interesting. Would love some new repertoire for my studio!
These all look fabulous! Especially interested in the original blues and gospel for some of my students 🙂
I love the sound of all of those…the Russian and blues ones for me, the German ones for my daughter who has just started learning…
They all look interesting. Especially “Blues, Boogie …”
Hi Melanie! I have not heard of any of these collections, nor the composers. Would love to know more.
These sound really interesting – keep changing my mind about which would be top of my wish-list!
The three books look interesting , particular interested to the piano piccolo and the blues book for my students.
They all look great. I love being introduced to new music.
Thank you for the invite. I like seeing the Russian Folk Songs collection! Have a great day!
All three books look great. A good addition to any repertoire
All three of these books look very appealing – the music inside is the most important bit, but it does help when the cover looks attractive too!
These would all fit in so nicely with my Studio and current students. I’d love to try all of them!
I haven’t seen these books before!
Very interesting collection. Would be nice addition to my studio library
The books look great. A great addition to the repertoire.
Thanks for bringing these to our attention. Piano Piccolo looks great for elementary students.
All the books look attractive, but as a pensioner and keen piano re-starter, the Piano Piccolo book seems more suitable to my ability !
Each of these books sounds amazing. Thank you for bringing our attention to these wonderful teaching resources, although I look forward to playing and enjoying all this music myself, as well as introducing it to my students.
Many thanks to all who took part in this competition, which is now closed 🙂
