Essays for Piano consists of 15 original compositions for intermediate contemporary-classical piano. The music provides fresh new material for piano students, teachers, professionals and casual players alike.

The compositions are ideal for use as additional learning material and recital repertoire for intermediate classical piano students. The pieces range in style from baroque and classical minuets and marches - to romantic waltzes, preludes, nocturnes and etudes - to modern monotone, pentatonic and whole tone music. Each piece also provides practice for specific skills important to the development of the intermediate level pianist - such as knowledge of more difficult keys, alternating base-chord patterns, arpeggios, scales, contrary motion, and the tasteful implementation of expression through effective use of legato, rubato, and sostenuto.

A unique combination of enjoyable melodies with technical challenge, Essays for Piano provides a valuable addition to the piano repertoire of the intermediate level piano student as well as the casual player.
