Note for Note: Bewitched, Bothered & Bewildered

A truly inspirational odyssey. The author’s musical journey will motivate and encourage everyone – his determination and disciplined long-term endeavours in music makes for a compelling, unique read.

Murray McLachlan, Concert Pianist & Educator, Head of Keyboard at Chetham’s School of Music

Note for Note is a Pilgrim’s Progress for the amateur pianist, in which author and keen amateur pianist, Howard Smith, charts the pleasures and the pitfalls, the achievements and “lightbulb moments” of learning and playing the piano. While there are many books written from the perspective of the professional pianist, Note for Note is a rarity in that it is entirely written from the point of view of the amateur musician. An inspiring and supportive must-read for anyone considering embarking on a similar journey as well as those who are already fully committed to it

an uplifting and inspiring tale [which] offers an insight into a highly personalised approach to learning that is likely to give teachers pause for thought.
