The “Arrangements for Piano Students” spoiler is too massive… I wonder if I can tuck spoilers into spoilers. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Meanwhile, feel free to use any of these scores for piano students (many of which omit fingering, slurs, dynamics, and/or other elements of notated music, for the purpose of pedagogical instruction), or for your own formal performance. I’d greatly appreciate hearing about your usage, of course!

  1. Absolutely, Julia! On that note, I’d be very interested in knowing which ones people use, because I throw out updates to files from time to time with better harmonics that I uncover (for example, I need to fix up the second system to the Schubert after my student actually played that part; the R.H. could be better voiced). Many of these scores I arrange silently at the computer without ever touching a piano, so playing the real deal sometimes leads to revisions.

    The ultimate goal is for all teachers to be arranging & composing their own music for their students, and then getting their students to eventually write and put stuff together for themselves. I believe every teacher/musician should eventually do this, according to my encompassing philosophy of holistic music-making.

    Thanks for the comment, and happy crafting!
