The combination of materials on this page includes repertoire which is appropriate for piano grade 1 level. Many of the pieces in these books are not only just great music, fun and interesting to discover, learn and play, but are also very useful in terms of skill development when compiled systematically with individual specifics taken into consideration. The time span of these piano compositions covers all centuries during which the piano and its keyboard predecessors existed in the piano music world. The pieces here for exams, performances, festivals, competitions and recreation in home environment or with friends and to expand repertoire.

📖 "Take it for granted from the beginning that everything is possible on the piano, even when it seems impossible to you, or really is so.
Ferruccio Busoni, in Letter to Woltersdorf, 1898

📖 “A piece should always mean something to the player, and something to the listener; but the 'something' which it means is never quite the same to different people. This is one way in which music differs from painting. In a real picture certain objects appear and in most cases we re sure what they are. Music leaves our thoughts much more free."
Walter Carroll in Anthony Walker Walter Carroll The Children's Composer
