This is my first blog post for Networking in Buckinghamshire so I will introduce myself: my name is Melanie and I am a concert pianist and author. I have just written my first book, So you want to play the piano? which will be available next month as an ebook on Amazon.
I have spent my life giving classical piano recitals around the world and in the UK as well as teaching the piano, adjudicating and examining for the ABRSM. After 15 years or non-stop travelling I decided to write down my experiences as a piano teacher and examiner so that I may help others learn the instrument with ease.
So you want to play the piano? will tell you everything you need to know before you take lessons. It is packed full of useful advice from what piano to buy or rent to finding a suitable teacher and appropriate piano book. It is easy to overlook these key aspects when starting to play an instrument.
The truth is that an inappropriate teacher or substandard instrument will make learning that much harder and may put you or your child off for ever. To play the piano well you need to be focused and disciplined so it is important to make that learning experience as pleasurable and easy as possible. I want you to fall in love with playing the piano!
I will be back here soon with more music information meanwhile you can browse my blogsite at www.classicalmel.wordpress.com or contact me at email@example.com. I look forward to hearing from you!
