I’ve followed a number of music and music teaching blogs for a while now, and to encourage you to check them out yourself, I hope to flag up my favourite articles of the week right here on Friday afternoons.

So, without further ado, this week’s top musical blog posts:

Discord (Don’t Shoot the Pianist) – One fantastic cartoon. Who hasn’t wanted to do this to someone?

Piano Exam Success: 9 key Points (ClassicalMel) – A great list of tips for taking ABRSM exams. Some aren’t relevant to singers, but many of them apply for all practical subjects. If you’re taking an exam this term, it’s worth checking out Mel’s list.

A Piano Practice Game That Will Make Piano Pieces “Stick” (Teach Piano Today) – A great game idea that uses Naughts and Crosses (or Tick-Tack-Toe for Americans) to challenge students to practice bar by bar. Designed for pianists, but suitable for adaption to other instruments including singing.
