Arranger Talks About His Collection of Compositions “Say It With Music”

Musical pedagogue Dr. James Lyke, Professor Emeritus, University of Illinois talks about his collection of piano arrangements based on the songs of Irving Berlin. The collection “Play it With Music” is published by Lee Roberts Music Publications and is distributed through Hal Leonard Music. We produced this somewhat impromptu video onsite LIVE at the 2015 MTNA Conference in Las Vegas, NV. Dr. Lyke’s description of the pieces is accompanied on the piano by his co-arranger and collaborator Geoffrey Haydon.

This is a good example of how to take advantage of the resources at a trade show or conference to promote your products. It is often a perfect time when all of the knowledgeable stakeholders are available in one place and the venue offers an active and energetic backdrop for your production.

All the best,
