Piano Mix is packed full of brilliant music that has been specially arranged for easy piano. It’s a whirlwind of styles and genres from centuries gone by through to the present day. The repertoire reflects the type of music found in our Piano syllabuses.
In Piano Mix 1 the pieces are mostly at Grade 1 standard, helping pianists progress to Grade 2 towards the end of the book. The series has been compiled and edited by David Blackwell with arrangements by Alan Bullard, Nikki Iles, Christopher Norton and Tim Richards to name a few.
Every arrangement is enjoyable to play because it fits well under the pianist’s hands while remaining faithful to the original work.
Well-known music includes Handel’s ‘Fireworks Minuet’ and opera classics from Bizet and Verdi. There are also lots of unsung melodies to be discovered, like Harry J. Lincoln’s ‘Bees-Wax Rag’ and a traditional Swiss piece called ‘In the Alps’. From the orchestra to the opera and from folk to jazz, there’s a world of music at your fingertips!
