Piano Progressions Anthology Two

By Katie Zhukov

Regular price $50.00 Sale


Grades 3 to 6

32 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

              Following months of drought then horrific bush fires throughout Australia, the composer was moved to write several pieces of piano music reflecting these dreadful conditions that are currently prevailing.  These pieces:

              • About the drought - grades 3 and 5 available online
              • Strong at the broken places - grade 4

              Composed 2020 January

                Super Special Secret Service Agent Sebastian ...Saves the Planet!

                By Mark Matthews

                Regular price $50.00 Sale

                The world is in chaos! It’s out-of-control. We’re searching for a Super-Hero to save us from the craziness.
                Enter Super Special Secret Service Agent Sebastian, when he arrives he eliminates the anarchy, wins over the enemy, makes things right and …Saves the Planet !

                23 piano solos covering grades 1-6 over the following pieces:

                • There's a storm approaching
                • Breaking news!
                • Panic in the streets
                • Hecticity
                • Super Special Secret Service Agent Sebastian
                • The time is now
                • Take the high ground
                • Danger averted

                These pieces are generally of a more robust nature to previously released works by this composer. With a growing interest in Anime, video and computer game themes it was felt that we should offer an alternative in this style of material. 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 adventure, fun and pleasure.  Composed 2020
