We all know that the ABRSM are providers of music exams for beginner pianists to very the very advanced pianist, however some of you may not realise that the ABRSM is is prolific publisher of sheet music. Their published music is now very well researched, my feeling is that their edition of the Schubert piano sonatas is among the best on the market. Think of pretty much any composer and the ABRSM will have it as one of their publications. Bach, Beethoven, Brahms and composers not just beginning with the letter B.
There is a great deal of music for pianists of all abilities. Hot off the press are 3 books called Piano Mix. They are full of very well chosen arrangements of orchestral music, opera, folk songs and jazz. I can almost hear traditionalists complaining, arguing that there is so much original piano music already, why do we need arrangements of other music? Well, why not? There is a long tradition of the great composers doing just that.
They are a good buy too, £4.95, £5.50 and £5.95. Give them a try, I am sure they will be a welcome addition to your teaching.
Have a look at some of my other blogs….
