New Year Weekend Competition

e20016ac-d186-4c15-a350-c7c3873fd590Welcome to the first competition of the New Year here on my blog! The prize is a copy of Faber Music’s latest publications, The Ultimate Easy Piano Songlist. A great selection of pop songs, all arranged for the intermediate pianist, or around Grade 5 – 7 level (in my opinion!).

Classics by artists such as Adele, Cilla Black, Cole Porter, Ella Fitzgerald, Chris Rea, Michael Buble, Eagles, One Direction, Wham!, Nina Simone, Muse, Vera Lynn, David Bowie, Justin Beiber, Jamie Cullum, and Radiohead, to name a few. Complete with lyrics and chord indications, this is a lovely volume.

I have one copy to give away, so please leave your comment in the comment box at the end of this post and I’ll announce the winner on Monday evening (British time).

Good luck! You can find out more and purchase the book here

My Books:

For much more information about practising 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 are featured, with at least two pages of practice tips for every piece.

If you’re thinking about learning to play the piano, my guide-book, So You Want To Play The Piano? (Alfred) is full of useful help and support.

The Faber Music Piano Anthology (Faber) is also a valuable resource for those who desire a collection of standard repertoire from Grades 2 – 8, featuring 78 pieces in total.

My Compositions:

I have written a selection of educational piano music (both solo and duet) and you can hear it and find out much more here: EVC Music Publications.

  1. Looks like this volume is just the thing to revive a weary teenager ….but I would actually enjoy playing these myself as well !

  2. I have several students who would benefit from this. Maybe I need to hold a competition in my studio to see who gets to use it!

  3. Perfect timing for this gift – what a way for teens and adult pupils to wipe away the ” blahs” of the winter weather!

  4. My teenage boys would really love this as a welcome break from their classical pieces set by their teacher – so difficult to keep teenage boys interested unless it involves a PS4!

  5. My kids would flip out at this great collection!! What a great way to add variety to the lesson!! A great motivating tool!!

  6. I’m not sure I’ve ever been involved in one of your giveaways before. What IS the competition?!

    I have at least a couple of students who would love and benefit from this great collection. Thank you!!

  7. I’ve been a fan of the Fabers from the very beginning. This is my 44th year of teaching and I’m still in search of fresh and new challenges for my students. This would an exciting addition to use alongside the classics and other competition pieces. I strongly believe all students need a variety of learning experiences to encourage their full potential.

  8. I’ve been looking for something like this for my teenage students who have been asking to add pop music to their repertoire, this will be great. Thank you.

  9. I have several students in Level 5. I have seen The Eagles in concert and Ed Sheeran is a great songwriter. Sounds like a marvelous song list. Thanks for this wonderful opportunity!
