Digital music publisher Informance is raising funding on Indiegogo for the development of The Practising the Piano Online Academy
London, UK | London-based digital music publisher, Informance, announces that it is raising funds via Indiegogo for a new initiative, the Practising the Piano Online Academy. Building on acclaimed teacher and pianist Graham Fitch’s successful Practising the Piano blog and eBook series, it aims to be the ultimate online resource for mastering the piano. The funding goal is £10,000 and funds raised will be used directly for creating additional content and resources.
The Online Academy is a subscription-based service which will provide access to a comprehensive library of lessons, masterclasses, tutorials and resources from both Graham Fitch and other leading experts. These materials will be presented in an intuitive, interactive manner and “will transform the way you approach playing and teaching the piano”, according to Informance founder, Ryan Morison. Particular attention will be paid to the subject of practising. Author Graham Fitch says: “Effective practice is essential to mastering the piano but rarely taught. As a result, I have spent decades researching and experimenting to find the optimal approach”.
Pianists and teachers across the world are being invited to support and participate in the development of this resource. A number of great rewards ranging from discounted subscriptions and product bundles through to opportunities to sponsor lessons and obtain a series of one-to-one consultations with Graham are on offer. Supporters will also have an opportunity to shape the Online Academy by suggesting and voting for topics and content they would like to see featured.
Development of the Practising the Piano Online Academy is already underway with an expected launch in July 2016.
