Renowned teacher and writer Graham Fitch and I will be hosting new online courses for Pianist Magazine. This will be the first time the magazine has ventured into piano lessons, and the new courses and workshops will hopefully encourage regular readers to engage with Pianist’s teachers and writers.
Graham’s course, which is intended for those of Grade 5 level or above, will take place on February 7th from 12.00 noon to 6.00pm. He will coach eight pianists, guiding them through their chosen repertoire, in front of an audience. The workshop will be conducted on Zoom, which offers a wonderful chance for those from around the world to join in. There will be a Q&A with Graham, and plenty of opportunity to discuss various aspects of piano playing, from memorising, how to practice, technique and repertoire choices.
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.
