Looking for great piano music at a low price with no copy restrictions?
Jennifer Eklund of PianoPronto.com is a busy composer, teacher, presenter and author, well known in America for her Piano Pronto method books.
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!
Cool sheet music for teens
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.
Unlimited Copy Licence
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!

Hi Tim, I am very interested in purchasing the studio license for the Impressions Suite. How can I do this, if I go directly to her side there is no option available for this. Thanks for all the good work and info you are sharing with us. Adrie
Hi Adrie. Look for the option to selected “unlimited reproductions”. This is the same as a studio licence. Let me know if it’s not there and I’ll chat with Jennifer.
Hi Tim, I’ve looked for the suggested option but I can’t find it. I’ve created an account at her side, but no luck. Perhaps I’m not looking at the right place. Will you contact Jennifer or shall I? Thanks Adrie
HI Adrie – leave it with me. Will check and get back to you.
Hi Adrie. It turns out that you can only get studio licences on individual copies of her music (not on the books/collections) sorry! Here’s what Jennifer says. This has been a recent business change for Piano Pronto. What you can still do, however, if search for the individual pieces in the book. Eg. Falling Leaves has a studio licence option here: https://www.pianopronto.com/shop/falling-leaves-easy-new-age-piano/
