Welcome to my blog and website.
The Classical Piano and Music Education Blog is nearly eight years old, and during that time I’ve thoroughly enjoyed writing every week on this site. I pen the majority of the articles and posts, but I particularly like to present guest writers and composers, who offer a whole range of differing views and thought-provoking ideas.
I primarily highlight piano and music education related topics, especially how to play and practice the instrument. You’ll find plenty of information on this site about various facets of a pianist’s life; from practising, taking piano exams and diplomas, to performing, concerts, piano resources, and writing piano music.
A few years ago, I curated a series of interviews called Classical Conversations, where I spoke to forty renowned pianists and teachers on camera. These interviews are on my YouTube channel and you can find out more about them, here. You’ll find my vlogs and videos with practice suggestions on my YouTube channel, and you can also hear my compositions on the channel, too.
If you’d like a specific piano or practice topic featured on this site, feel free to contact me via the contact page on this blog. I look forward to hearing from you.
For much more information about how to practice piano repertoire, take a look at my piano course, Play it again: PIANO (published by Schott Music). Covering a huge array of styles and genres, the course features a large collection of progressive, graded piano repertoire from approximately Grade 1 to advanced diploma level, with copious practice tips for every piece. A convenient and beneficial course for students of any age, with or without a teacher, and it can also be used alongside piano examination syllabuses too.
