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 2 the pieces are mostly at Grade 2 standard, helping pianists progress to Grade 3 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 ballet music from Tchaikovsky’s Nutcracker and ‘The Muppets’ theme tune. There are also lots of unsung melodies to be discovered like China’s ‘Kangding Love Song’ and a traditional Scottish piece called ‘Roaring Jelly’. From the orchestra to the opera and from folk to jazz, there’s a world of music at your fingertips!
