Piano Explorer Magazine

Here is the link to the listening examples from the Piano Explorer Magazine. Each month there will be new pieces for you to enjoy on the site. The question sheet on the listening examples is available at my studio. Enjoy!

Summer

For most students, summer is a time to take a break from the regular schedule of lessons. This doesn’t mean that the playing has to stop. Learning is also about exploration, so pull out those pieces you’ve been wanting to try, or play through the pieces you’ve learned throughout the year or even years back. If you have a composer you’re interested in, research his/her life or find some recordings of music they have composed. Here are some famous composers to get you started – click, turn up the volume and enjoy:
