Today’s competition features the recently published piano method, Piano Junior (Schott Music). Written by German composer and pedagogue Hans Günter-Heumann, it is designed as ‘A creative and interactive piano course’ for children from the age of 6, which progresses in small, manageable steps.
The course encourages creativity through regular, integrated ‘corners’, such as composing, improvising, playing, technique, ear training, memory, sight-reading and music quizzes. Introduced by the main ‘character’, PJ the robot, this beautifully illustrated method features a whole series of books, as well as a plethora of other materials including videos, audio demos and play-alongs for all the pieces, as well as a range of extra fun resources to download. The series offers a lesson, theory, duet and performance book in, at present, Level 1 & 2 (Level 3 & 4 will be available soon).
I have a Level 1 Theory, Duet and Performance book (for one winner (3 books)), and a Level 2 Theory, Duet and Performance book (for a second winner (3 further books)), in this week’s lucky draw. You can explore the books here.
Please leave your comments in the comment box at the end of this post, I will announce the two winners on Monday evening (British time). Good luck!
