Weekend Competition: JukeBox – Fun Piano Solos and Duets

This weekend my competition features a new publication by British composer Olly Wedgwood. JukeBox: Fun Piano Solos and Duets (Volume 1) is a colourful new volume containing 10 original piano pieces, all published by Olly’s own publishng company, OllysPianoSheets. Intended for students between Grade 1 – 2 Level (ABRSM), the 10 pieces can be accompanied by performance and backing tracks, which are downloaded as mp3s from Olly’s website.

The pieces all contain Olly’s musical hallmarks, and comprise popular styles from jazz and blues, to swing and soul. Olly suggests the pieces are for those who have been learning the piano for around a year, and he provides a helpful sentence or two at the top of each one with practice suggestions. The final two works are duets, and my favourites are Silver Lining and Pentatonic Prairie.

I have two copies to give away to two winners, so as usual, please leave your comments in the comment box at the end of this post and I will select the winner 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.
