Towards the end of last year, she released a number of new books of solo piano music suited to adults and teenage intermediate students, around the Grade 4-6 “Piano for Leisure” level (if you’re in Australia).
While her book and download prices are already inexpensive, Jennifer has kindly offered an even better price for readers of topmusic.co. Keep reading for more info!
Today I’m going to give you a quick overview of her “Impressions Suite” which has four great works in a contemporary romantic style, and which have worked well for a number of my students. These pieces could easily be used as “own choice” repertoire in ANZCA or AMEB PFL exams or just general repertoire during the year.
To see samples of the music and listen to recordings, check out her online store now.
Best of all, like Australian composer Daniel McFarlane (see Piano Music for Boys: 15 of the best pieces by Daniel McFarlane), Jennifer’s music is available for instant download and comes with a variety of flexible music copying licences.
For just $8.88, you can instantly download the “Impressions Suite” eBook to use with one student. However, if you pay just $22.88, you get an unlimited reproduction licence for life. This means you may copy and print the music in the book as much as you want for your students. Brilliant!
Under this licence, not only can you copy the music, you can scan it and upload to your iPad for reference (still not currently legal under other copyright licences).
I wish more publishers made offers like this!
