Piano Premiers Collection

I am happy and honored to have been included in a group of eleven contemporary American composers, who were invited by Subito Music to submit brief piano pieces in the intermediate grades for a new edition, Piano Premieres.

Extraordinarily diverse in the styles and techniques of 20th and 21st century music and suitable for both study and recital performance, these pieces will expose the developing performer to the world of contemporary composition, and are sure to be an enjoyable teaching and performing experience. This book may also be used for music majors secondary piano courses.

This beginner anthology is designed to excite you who always wanted to learn how to make music at the piano.

It enables the novice to learn solid reading skills in a way that is fun and engaging. The songs are chosen carefully to to make sure you progress in an enjoyable and fruitful manner.

Enjoy your journey! Please don’t be a stranger.

This second anthology consists of exercises and compositions of greater complexity than those in the first volume. I hope that they will provide you with hours of musical enjoyment.

As I stated in Book 1—and it bears repeating here due to its importance—making music is our birthright, and nothing else can satisfy the universal human need to make music.
