Pianist  |  Play Beginner  


What's inside Play Beginner?

-18 FULL SCORES! An assortment favourite beginner-level scores from past issues of Pianist (they’ll be great sight-reading examples for the more advanced player). The pieces range from Baroque to Romantic: including Bach’s evergreen Prelude in C, Satie’s intoxicating Gymnopédie No 1 and a simplified arrangement of Borodin’s famous Polovstian Dance.

-As every carefully chosen piece has a unique style, each one will teach you something different about technique.

-EXTRA NOTATION ADVICE: Some scores have added step-by-step written advice placed into the music – as if a teacher is guiding you and making notes for you

-3 HOW TO PLAYS: Contributor Melanie Spanswick gives a step-by-step lesson on three of the more ‘advanced’ beginner pieces, so you should be able to iron out any tricky bits in no time

-‘FIRST STEPS’ ARTICLE: Written by long term contributor Tim Stein

-VIDEOS GALORE: lots of beginner video lessons to view and learn from
