Free piece of the Day

For the next few months we’ll be publishing a free piece of music every Monday to Friday at 2pm (apart from bank holidays). We’ll be making a variety of pieces available from our books, new and old, with piano accompaniments where needed. We hope you enjoy learning and playing these pieces at home. Please let us know how you get on by emailing us at [email protected].

You can view the full library of previous free pieces of the day here.

Bonny Bobby Bluetoe

Bonny Bobby Bluetoe is a familiar favourite for many pianists featured in our Core Classics series. Download a free copy of the piece today or you can buy the book from our online shop.

Core Classics is a collection of seven books of music from the piano canon, selected and graded by leading educationalists.

All pieces have been carefully selected to ensure that each book is nothing short of a ‘teacher’s toolkit’ – works that any teacher would want their pupils to learn as part of their musical journey.

Each book is authoritatively graded, with techniques introduced progressively throughout. The books are equally valuable for learners working towards a grade exam, between grades, or playing for leisure, building technical skills and confidence. With an elegant and attractive design, and unrivalled range of repertoire, this is an essential collection for piano teachers and learners alike.
