Announcing my involvement with Piano Star.
This delightful series of 3 piano books for children has just been published, September 2016.
I am proud to have been invited by the ABRSM to compile and edit these books, along with David Blackwell. I have also composed/arranged some of the pieces.
There are 74 original pieces and arrangements, solos and duets.
From the ABRSM website:
Aisling Greally, piano teacher and co-compiler of the series alongside David Blackwell, said “Children will be immediately hooked by the new series, Piano Star. The wide variety of attractive and accessible pieces is sure to capture their imaginations and have them running to the piano to try them out!
“There are cute, funny and quirky themes, exploring familiar and surprising scenarios, within a variety of sound worlds. Children can sing the words as they play, enjoy the activities, play duets along with their teachers and admire the delightful colour illustrations by Tim Budgen… and all of this even before taking their Grade 1 exam!”
Here is the full list of composers:
David Blackwell, Kathy Blackwell, Alan Bullard, Mike Cornick, Andrew Eales, Aisling Greally, Peter Gritton, Heather Hammond, Paul Harris, Nikki Iles, Edmund Jolliffe, Nancy Litten, John Madden, Karen Marshall, Christopher Norton, Nicholas Scott-Burt, Jane Sebba, Alasdair Spratt, Mark Tanner, Sarah Watts
