Stormy Ocean is being offered for free today. This piano piece is around late elementary level (Grades 2-3), and is a majestic piece with a left hand melody and right hand chordal accompaniment. The left hand tune is ideal for strengthening bass clef reading and for developing cantabile playing too. You can download and enjoy it here:
For much more information about how to practice piano repertoire, take a look at my two-book piano course, Play it again: PIANO (Schott). Covering a huge array of styles and genres, 49 progressive pieces from approximately Grade 1 – 8 level are featured, with at least two pages of practice tips for every piece. A convenient and beneficial course for students of any age, with or without a teacher, and it can also be used alongside piano examination syllabuses too.
