        7 piano solos on life, love and sharing beverage with many pieces extending to additional grades. Grades 3 – 6.

        In this day and age, we are spoilt for choice and our multi-cultural world offers a vast array of what we can have in our ‘cuppa’. In these seven pieces of intermediate level difficulty, you’ll find a variety of reflections, from the times I’ve spent with family, friends, colleagues and even student families, over a chat and some liquid refreshment. It is the aim of this set of works to offer piano students and teachers a supplementation to their exam studies, as an extra list, or purely as a piece for pleasure.  Composed 2020

        Journey, The

        By Mark Matthews

        Regular price $25.00 Sale

        6 piano solos on life, love and friendship. Grades 3 – 5.

        Everyone loves a good road trip - the excitement and expectation as The Journey begins, the feeling of freedom on the open road, the anticipation of what lies around the bend, the indecisiveness when choosing a road to take, the anxiety of being lost, at night, on a lonely lane, and finally the welcoming familiarity of the homeward adventure.
        Life, like the “road trip” is a journey, with its hope of something new, its spectacular vistas, its twists and turns, of unknown and exhilarating choices, its darkness when we feel we’ve made a wrong turn and the sense of homecoming when it ‘all comes together’.
        The metaphor is played out here in this six-piece suite, of intermediate studies featuring both minor and major keys with modulatory explorations.

        Composed 2019

        8 piano solos for yesterday, today and forever!
        Some of us remember a time that we love, perhaps an era gone by that is now but a memory. For others, there’s the time at hand, the moment to live in, to be enjoyed and taken as it is, and yet for others there’s coming a time when all will be well with everything in its place, when, at the right time, all will come to pass.  Composed 2016.

        Piano Progressions Anthology One

        By Katie Zhukov

        Regular price $50.00 Sale


        Beginner to Grade 3

        48 piano works by Wirripang-published, Australian composers. 

        New repertoire for Piano Progressions was commissioned from Australian male and female composers to celebrate 10 years since the release of Wirripang Australian Piano Anthology in 2011. The first anthology consisted of three books, with 46 new works from Grade One to Diploma level. The success of this publication had led to two Australian Women Composers’ Anthologies in 2015 and 2019 and a third in 2021, all aiming at intermediate-to-advanced piano students. The feedback from teachers indicated the need for more repertoire at beginner-to-intermediate level, resulting in the two books of Piano Progressions that provide fresh teaching materials from Preliminary to Grade 6 level.

        Especially written and selected for this volume as edited by Katie Zhukov
