Teaching Notes 2018

2018 piano Albums - Teaching Notes 

 

We are pleased to introduce the new piano albums for 2018. As always, we aim to make the pieces varied in terms of style, tempo, and character, while ensuring the learning curve from one grade to the next is progressive. The teaching notes can be viewed as a tool to help you navigate the intricacies of some of the works and unveil the beauty of pieces that may appear simple at first. 

With best wishes for the year ahead!

 Lorna Horan, Senior Examiner
