To be considered a regional production, Ofcom requires that productions to either be based outside of the M25, spend at least 70% of their budget outside the M25, or ensure that at least 50% of the production talent come from outside of London.

How To Read Piano Notes And Keys – Visual Teaching Material For Piano Teachers

Music

Sight reading plays a huge role in instrument learning, not just piano. 

And yes, most beginners hesitate and neglect in sight reading because it requires left brain functions: memorizing stuff and thinking logically.

That’s why I created a visual guide on how to read piano notes and keys. With friendly illustrations, it would help students acquire the information much faster, easier.

Below is the summary infographic for the guide. You can click here to learn more about the original guide with two different approaches to learn the pitch names: Left-brained and right-brained.

Working in TV can mean realising a dream. From meeting interesting people to attending glitzy award ceremonies, the television industry is, undoubtedly, an exciting place to work. But, amid shrinking budgets, long hours and a largely freelance working culture, what once looked like a fulfilling career can turn out to involve an unbearable toll on our mental health.

Over the past few years, Love Island, Dancing on Ice and Blind Date have been dusted down and put back on public display, bringing audiences to broadcasters and profits to producers.

If it were always so simple, broadcasters would now be planning the return of At Home with the Eubanks and Young, Dumb and Living off Mum, and everything in between.

Radio presenter Chris Stark shares his secrets to success

Showreels, Trailers, Tv/ Film

When he was offered two days a week on the Scott Mills Show in 2012, he did everything in his power to get noticed. “I would turn up at 8.30 and stay all day and help wherever I could, no one asked me to leave!” 

He has since gone on to become a household name on Radio 1 and has carved out an exciting career with fresh and interesting content for the station. “Try and find a way of being yourself which inherently will make you different,” he explains.  

“I like to find the kind of bridge between these megastars and what we do on a weekly basis, like going to the pub.

Sinead Keenan on her RTS-award winning role in Little Boy Blue

Showreels, Trailers, Tv/ Film

“I remember watching an interview with Paul Bettany once and he said, ‘acting is like sex, it’s nice to do but embarrassing to talk about.’”

She laughs, “It’s so true.”

Keenan’s acting career started on Irish soap opera Fair City before her breakout role as Nina on BBC’s Being Human. “I’ve tried to take parts that I find interesting, or well written, challenging,” she says.

“On the other hand, you have to live, you have to eat, you have to work, so it’s within that kind of jobbing actor thing, trying to balance those two things out.”
