Simply Chopin Nocturnes
The idea for this series came from listening to some of my favorite piano literature. Chopin was a master at creating absolutely beautiful, lyrical melodies, and I found myself wishing my own intermediate students could enjoy playing his music. This collection featuring, ten of Chopin’s Nocturnes, is the second book in this series, and is aimed at preserving as much of his original works as possible, while making them accessible for the intermediate student.
Polyrhythms for Pianists
This book presents strategies for learning to play polyrhythms, from the most common ones, such as two against three, up through four against five. It contains rhythm exercises, improvisation suggestions, and thirteen pieces based on polyrhythms. Once you’ve worked with the book, you might develop intense cravings for more polyrhythms, and may even be inspired to compose polyrhythmic pieces of your own.
Simply Chopin Preludes
The idea for this book came from listening to some of my favorite piano literature. Enchanted by the absolutely beautiful, lyrical melodies of Chopin’s Opus 28, I found myself wishing my own intermediate students could enjoy them now, and not just the handful of Preludes that are more accessible for students. As I edited these Preludes with intermediate hands and minds, it was my desire to preserve their full length, in the original keys, and with as much of Chopin’s original markings as possible. I hope you agree the result is a celebration of Chopin’s original work, but now accessible for the intermediate student!
Spring (Movement 3: Allegro) Multi-Level Solos Pack

This multi-level pack includes four different versions (late beginner through advanced) and provides ample opportunity for developing pianists to work on lyrical artistry and interpretation.
Tango in D
Tango in D, composed by Jenny Walker, starts with a typical tango introduction followed by a precise, rhythmic accompaniment with a sustained melody taken by the upper right hand. The piece contains a certain cheeky-feel combined with the passion of a tango. This selection is ideal for intermediates.
