Peter Hayward’s 'Classic Collection’ and 'Play Better’ Books Musical Maestro Peter Hayward has unearthed a hidden stash of his superb music books. A world renowned organist, pianist and keyboard player, just like his many top tutorials at festivals and in OKC, the books are clear and easy to understand, and come in two groups, nicely arranged music to play, and hints and tips to help us all play better. Peter is a respected and much loved teacher at organ & keyboard festivals and has produced many books showing the many different techniques of keyboard playing. An insipirational teacher, Peter has a way of removing the mystery of music and explaining it all in plain English with no difficult jargon. He describes his books as, ‘Showing Professional Tips & Ideas - Just For Fun’ These books were published some years ago but this supply has been tucked away in clean, dry storage, so their pages are in pristine condition, but the staples haven’t worn quite so well, as they are a little rusty here and there! Peter says he is thrilled to be able to offer this collection of priceless and ageless information for music lovers, a real wealth of musical knowledge, but that, unlike Dorian Gray, both he and his staples haven’t aged as well as he’d have liked! We are delighted to be able to offer Peter’s books at very special prices.
