Last Saturday my latest piano compositions were published (by EVC Music Publications Ltd.). Piano Magic is a set of 10 pieces for the elementary pianist (around Grade 1 or 2 level of the ABRSM music exams), and they evoke a colourful fantasy world of witches, ghosts, wizards and fairies. Designed for the young pianist (although older pianists may enjoy them too!), these pieces hopefully offer a chance to get to grips with various technical and musical challenges, particularly staccato, syncopation, the sustaining pedal, quick coordination between hands and complete use of the whole keyboard.
The pieces are 16 bars in length and are all quite different in character. You can hear them by clicking on the links below and you can purchase the book 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.
