Weekend Competition

Faber MusicIt’s a Friday and therefore time for a weekend competition. I have two books to giveaway to two lucky readers; Easy Jazzin About The Year and Mindfulness, the piano collection, both published by Faber Music.

Easy Jazzin About The Year is the latest book by Pam Wedgwood, and is part of her extremely popular series, Jazzin About. It is intended for those of Grade 1-2 (elementary) level and contains a fun selection of original and favourite tunes perfect  for celebrating various ‘occasions’ throughout the year, such as Halloween, Christmas and Bonfire Night. It comes with a useful CD too.

Mindfulness, the piano collection is a delightful anthology of famous and less known pieces for those of around intermediate to advanced level (Grades 6-8), all designed to help you relax, unwind and practice the art of mindfulness. Works include pieces by Satie, Chopin, Ravel, Schumann, Beethoven, Einaudi, Goodall and Frahm.

I have one copy of each book, so please leave your comment in the comment box at the end of this post to be in with a chance of winning. I will select the winners on Sunday evening (British time). Good Luck!

Friday Competition and Workshop by Pamela Wedgwood

After Hours

The weekend competition today features a volume by one of the most popular Contemporary pedagogical piano composers, Pamela Wedgwood. Pamela has written a substantial amount of piano music at all different levels, with many pieces included in various exam board syllabus’ and festival classes across the world. Those familiar with her style will know Jazzin’ About and Up-Grade! as well as the After Hours series.

My competition prize is a copy of Pamela’s On My Travels from the After Hours series, which was published earlier this year by Faber Music.  It’s intended for those of around Grades 6-8 or intermediate to advanced level, and was inspired by people and places visited by the composer. The collection consists of evocative titles such as Thetis Island, Chez Kate, The Spirit of Pohutukawa and Abel Tasman, and each piece provides plenty of melodic and harmonic interest for pianists.

To win this copy, please leave a comment in the comment box at the end of this post and I’ll select the winner on Sunday evening (British time).

Pamela Wedgwood will be giving a workshop (and adjudicating the EPTA (European Piano Teachers Association) composer’s competition) on Saturday November 7th which is being held at Monkton Combe Senior School, Bath, BA2 7HG, UK. This will be a wonderful opportunity for all budding composers. Presented by EPTA UK, the workshop is free to attend, and there are still a few places left for both participants and observers.

You can purchase your copy of On My Travels, here.
