This is our last post for the year as we will be taking a short break over the Festive Season. Therefore we’d like to take this opportunity to thank you for your support over this last year and to wish you all very happy and peaceful holidays!
As usual, it’s been a busy year for us as our content library has continued to grow and we’ve had the privilege of working with so many incredible contributors on a variety of projects. It’s also been wonderful to have the opportunity to meet so many of you in-person or online at our various events.
We’ll be back early in the New Year and have lots in store which we are very much looking forward to sharing with you. In the meantime, we’ll leave you with this excerpt from our last online workshop for the year with some seasonally themed piano inspiration from Fred Karpoff:
Our very best wishes for a happy and peaceful holiday season, and a joyous 2024!

Festive Music & Gift Ideas
Christmas Music by the Masters
On the 14th of December we were treated to a wonderful collection of seasonal piano gems written by great composers in an online workshop presented by Fred Karpoff. Fred demonstrated how multi-dimensional piano technique can be combined with expressive music making using a variety of works by composers such as Liszt, Reger, Mendelssohn, Reger and Rebikov!
