The 40 Thing Challenge

We love how teachers around the world are taking the idea of the 40 Piece Challenge and making it their own!

Samantha explores the question of what constitutes a piece and how to avoid neglecting important things like composition, improvisation, general knowledge, aural skills, technical work, transposition and theory in favour of learning as many pieces as possible.
