For those in the music education industry in the UK, the Music & Drama Education Expo event is a yearly highlight. Organised by Rhinegold, it’s held over two days (9th and 10th February 2017) at Olympia (London), and features a raft of events, including professional development sessions, seminars, practical workshops, performances, show cases, and a huge exhibition of over 130 of the leading brands in the industry.
My publisher EVC Music Publications Ltd will be hosting many events over the two-day period; composer presentations, performances, and book launches, including those by composers Donald Thompson, Heather Hammond, Andrew Higgins, and a book presentation by piano teacher Irina Mints (all held at stand G8). EVC Music director, Elena Cobb, will also be giving a presentation at 10.15am on Thursday 9th February; The Art of Positive Self-Promotion held at the Rhinegold Theatre.
I’ll be giving two presentations at this year’s event on the EVC Music stand (G8) at 12.30pm on both Thursday (9th) and Friday (10th). The presentation will focus on my piano compositions, specifically the four books published by EVC Music. I’ll also be playing some of the pieces and chatting generally about how my works can complement exam syllabuses and specifically music festivals.
If you’re in the vicinity, please do come along and say hello!
