Piano Junior: the winners are…

Many thanks to all who took part in my weekend competition, which was to win two series of books from the new piano method, Piano Junior, published by Schott Music and written by German composer and pedagogue Hans-Günter Heumann. You can find out much more about this fully interactive beginner’s method here.

The winners are….

Julie Campbell wins the Level 1 Theory, Duet and Performance books, and

Ann Coleman wins the Level 2 Theory, Duet and Performance books

CONGRATULATIONS! Please send your address via the contact page on this blog, and the books will be on their way.

More competitions are coming soon!

My Books:

For much more information about practising repertoire, take a look at my two-book piano course, Play it again: PIANO (Schott). Covering a huge array of styles and genres, 49 progressive pieces from approximately Grade 1 – 8 are featured, with at least two pages of practice tips for every piece.

If you’re thinking about learning to play the piano, my guide-book, So You Want To Play The Piano? (Alfred) is full of useful help and support.

The Faber Music Piano Anthology (Faber) is also a valuable resource for those who desire a collection of standard repertoire from Grades 2 – 8, featuring 78 pieces in total.

My Compositions:

I have written a selection of educational piano music (both solo and duet) and you can hear it and find out much more here: EVC Music Publications.


Funkey! sight-reading books: The winners….

20160425_073801_resizedMany thanks to everyone who took part in this weekend’s competition, which offered an opportunity to win one of three Funkey! sight-reading books. With over 70 comments, I think we can safely assume sight-reading to be an important element in piano lessons.

The winners are:

Sarah Martin wins Level 1

Learnatune wins Level 2

And Ada wins Level 3

Congratulations! Please send your addresses via the contact page here on my blog. More competitions and giveaways will be coming soon.

Improve Your Theory! Grades 1 & 2: The Winners…

And the winners are...

Many thanks to all who took part in my competition this weekend, and for the many lovely comments about my blog too – they are much appreciated. With well over forty comments, Improve Your Theory! is clearly destined to be a popular series of theory books. Unfortunately, there could only be two winners today.

Many congratulations to Ann Pepper who wins Improve Your Theory! Grade 1, and to Lynn Dinkle who wins the Grade 2 volume. Please send your addresses via the contact page here on my blog, and I will pop the books in the post tomorrow.

If you didn’t win, don’t despair! Next week I have Improve Your Theory! Grades 3, 4 and 5 to give away! Therefore, there will be three winners in the next competition; watch our for my Friday competitions which are now a regular feature here on my blog.
