We’re pleased to announce that, after the success of her last visit to Forsyth, Nancy Bachus is to revisit us on Friday the 9th of September 2011. Nancy is an acclaimed teacher, performer and music historian and one of Alfred Publishing’s biggest names. You can learn more about her by clicking here.
Her last visit saw the UK launch of her books “The Classical Spirit” & “The Romantic Spirit” which are now set on the ABRSM Piano Syllabus.
This time she’ll be featuring her new series “Exploring Piano Classics” (which is set to become just as widely used) as well as highlighting the ABRSM listed pieces from the abovementioned Spirit Series and offering advice on teaching beginner students. Anyone who wishes to attend this event, please register by emailing music@alfredUK.com or by ringing the hotline on 01279-828960.
We’ll be providing refreshments and you’ll have the opportunity to view and buy all Nancy’s books (and any other of our 30,000 stocked titles) at a discounted rate. For those of you who’d like to see the books prior to the workshop, we’re offering the Bachus range at a promotional online discount of 10% until the end of September. To view the range click the book’s cover.
