James Welburn has produced two collections of original music for Musica Ferrum which I have previously reviewed: Reflections in Waltz and Musical Escapades, both highly enjoyable.

Cool Cat Blues comes from his hotly anticipated and soon to be released third collection Adventures & Accolades.

I will review the collection once it’s available, but in the meantime here’s a preview of Cool Cat Blues, an astutely observed jazz piece for the intermediate player; those looking for fresh material that will get their toes tapping are in for a treat!

And here’s your free promotional copy of the sheet music to this piece, courtesy of Editions Musica Ferrum:


Further details of the book, including the option of purchasing a digital copy or studio license, are available from the publisher here.

FREE! Christine Artemis Pappa: Baby Rag

Baby Rag is a riot of fun, and comes from the colourfully varied early intermediate collection Mosaic 3, recently published by Musica Ferrum as part of this growing, progressive series.

Christine Artemis Pappa points out in her introduction to the piece that the stride left hand leaps and right hand sixths could prove challenging for some, but I think any player by around Grade 4 will be able to have lots of fun playing this jauntily syncopated and memorably melodic skit. Note that quaver/eighth notes here are meant to be swung.

You can catch a few bars of this piece in this promotional video, which also reveals the range and character of the Mosaic 3 book:

The Mosaic series is available from Musicroom here, and digital copies and site licenses are as ever available directly from Musica Ferrum here.

Here’s your FREE sheet music download of Baby Rag to enjoy:

FREE! Borislava Taneva: Autumn Mood

Autumn Mood is one of the many expressive, evocative pieces to be found in Borislava’s magnificent pair of books Riddles, Puzzles and Pieces, which I recently reviewed here.

The complete books make an excellent purchase for any creative piano teacher and their students looking to enlarge their library of superb music, and Autumn Mood straight away confirms the calibre of Taneva’s brilliant writing.

Suitable for late elementary (Grade 2) to Early Intermediate (Grade 3) player, the composer tells us that the educational goal of Autumn Mood is the improvement of legato technique and the crossing of the hands.

I would add that the delicious harmonies found here will work their magic on the developing ear, helping the early intermediate player absorb exquisite chromaticism and learn to hear the directional pull within a chord.

Riddles, Puzzles and Plays is available from Musicroom here and as a digital download or studio license from the publisher here.

In the meantime, it’s time to get into an Autumn Mood

FREE! Alison Mathews: Whispering Breeze

Whispering Breeze is drawn from Alison Mathews 2019 publication Landscapes: Poetic Piano Solos, which I reviewed here when it was published.

Landscapes is available from Musicroom here, or as a digital copy or site license from the publisher’s website here.

Whispering Breeze is one of the easiest pieces in the collection, and could be attempted by an intermediate player at around UK Grade 3.

The beautifully meandering but memorable melody here enjoys a gently mesmerising syncopation which you will easily pick up after listening to the composer’s recording:

FREE! Ben Crosland: Memento

Memento is a taken from the latest album of fresh, original music by British composer Ben Crosland, which is available here in physical form, and as a digital download from the publisher here. The collection will be reviewed on Pianodao soon.

Originally written for “felt piano”, the music weaves its gentle magic with a 12/8 left hand figuration that benefits from a large hand span and requires supple wrist movement. The nostalgic melodies of the right hand above this deft harmonic base will enchant player and listener alike.

Suitable for players at around Grade 4 level.
