Jennifer Eklund of PianoPronto.com has kindly offered to sponsor a giveaway for us today! Let me tell you a little bit about Jennifer’s work.
Jennifer is a piano teacher and self-publishing composer with a huge output of materials for piano students. She publishes her own piano method called Piano Pronto as well as a variety of supplemental books/sheet music. Jennifer sells both print copies and digital copies (for immediate download) of her materials.
The Piano Pronto website conveniently offers full audio previews and ample sheet music previews of all the products in the shop. Jennifer stated that it is her desire to recreate the experience of being in a brick and mortar sheet music store when visiting and shopping at PianoPronto.com!
One of the most unique things about the Piano Pronto website is that the shop offers an ‘unlimited reproductions’ licensing option. This option allows teachers to pay a one-time flat-fee for a digital copy of the sheet music and are then permitted to make copies of portions or the entire book for use within their studios — for life. This latitude allows teachers to not only build their digital library, but also allows teachers to easily (and legally) customize the lesson experience for each and every student by only using what they need, when they need it.
Jennifer’s philosophy is that students should be exposed to a variety of styles of music early in their study. This shows in her output: she composes in a variety of musical styles. Jennifer uses arrangements of familiar traditional folk tunes, arrangements of great classical works, and original classical selections. You will also find music that sounds pop-influenced, jazzy, or bluesy. She strives to compose music that sounds great and is motivating for students to learn.
For the giveaway, Jennifer has offered for one lucky winner to review either either Volume 1 or Volume 2 of her Christmas Classics books. Each volume contains an assortment of Christmas piano solos written in a New Age lyrical style, intended for early-intermediate to intermediate level pianists.
To enter, please leave a comment below by Sunday, November 24 at midnight EST about the Christmas music activities occurring within your studio this year. Are you planning a recital? Which Christmas songs/carols are the most demanded among your students? I’d love to hear from you!
The winner will be randomly chosen and announced the day after the deadline. If the giveaway winner is in the U.S., they will receive a print copy of the book in the mail; if the winner is outside the U.S., they will receive a digital e-book version.
