Dame Fanny Waterman Marks Special Birthday with a Year of Achievements!
Earlier this year saw Dame Fanny Waterman DBE, co-author of the best-selling Waterman/Harewood piano series 'Me and My Piano' mark the milestone occasion of her 90th birthday. With Book sales of over 2 million copies, and a hectic schedule of teaching, Dame Fanny is showing no signs of slowing down just yet!

Fanny Waterman is a living legend in the world of music, a teacher of international renown, an internationally-respected clinician and adjudicator, and is the author of over 30 books. Alongside her role of Chairman and Artistic Director of the prestigious Leeds International Pianoforte Competition, which she founded in 1961, Dame Fanny has recently taken on the role of President of the Harrogate International Festival, and earlier this year was made an honorary member of the Royal Philharmonic Society, a prestigious award in recognition of her services to music.

2010 looks to be another good year for Dame Fanny, as she will be making a welcome return to China and South Korea, where she will again dazzle her audience with her insight and experience in a series of masterclasses. She will also be a member of the jury of the Bach Competition in Leipzig, and the World Expo in Shanghai.
