Seasons Greetings 2022

Wishing you a very Happy Festive Holiday and a Peaceful New Year

2022 has certainly had its high points and low points for us all, and with many world issues on our minds, it’s probably with a heavy heart that we usher in 2023. However, I want to thank you for your continued generosity and support in reading this blog. I hope you have the opportunity to enjoy a well-deserved break with your friends and family members, allowing you to start 2023 renewed and refreshed.

Next year will be a busy one for me; I will publish more books and am grateful to be able to travel again. If you live in Dubai, Oman, Hong Kong, Singapore, or Germany, and would like to attend one of my workshops, keep an eye on my ‘Events’ page here on the blog. My new year begins with a book tour to Dubai and Oman, working with teachers and students, and I am so looking forward to it.

I leave you with this performance of December from Tchaikovsky’s The Seasons Op. 37 bis. played by 2015 International Chopin Piano Competition winner Seong-jin Cho.


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.

    Hi Melanie
    Happy New Year to you! All the best for 2023 and going forward.
    Do you have any workshops/courses in the UK during this year, please? Do hope so!
    I do think Adult Piano Returners is a great group: thanks for your creation.
    Happy playing!

    1. Hello Janie,
      A very Happy New Year to you, too. I am so pleased that you are enjoying the Adult Piano Returners Facebook Group – it’s great that we have such a lively and engaged group.
      Most of my workshops will be abroad this year. However, I am possibly doing one for Presto Music (a large shop in Leamington Spa) in May but I don’t have a date as yet. I’ll let you know as soon as it’s confirmed. All the very best for 2023, Melanie

        All the best
