Music for Piano and Strings


Play an easy or intermediate composition for piano while being accompanied by a string orchestra, or study the scores and learn how to orchestrate a piano composition. Each composition is a solo piece that can be played without an orchestra.

All sound files start with 2 seconds of silence and 2 bars of metronome ticks. Download with a right click or a Control click. AAC/M4A (Apple) sounds better than MP3. FLAC is CD-quality, but heavy on memory!

Use good headphones. Earphones can sound bad.
