On a completely different note, for those interested in sight-reading and sight-reading tutorials, I can highly recommend American pianist and writer Erica Sipes’ excellent ‘live’ streamed show, Sight-reading Maverick. Every Sunday afternoon (5pm British time), Erica sight-reads through a pre-selected group of pieces, offering useful tips and sight-reading guidance. She enjoys showcasing new repertoire, and yesterday’s show featured one of my pieces, Frenzy (from Simply Driven: Schott), and those interested can view the whole show, which lasts an hour, here:

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.
