Compositions for Piano

Every now and then I will offer a couple of older compositions for free. I don't know when I will replace them, so grab them while you can.

These 3 compositions should have been part of an album called The City. I forgot why I never finished the album.

PDF City Life - December
PDF City Life - Bear in the city (Funny, have a look at the pdf)
PDF Autumn - Sun in the city


The Calendar

Every day of the year I wrote a composition for piano, regardless of the circumstances (e.g. a severe flu). The Calendar consists of 366 pieces.

Because the compositions were written on the day itself, this album can be seen as a diary. Can you hear it if I had a bad hair day? And what did I write on your birthday?

2 do-it-yourself compositions per month have been added to the diary. I made the start, can you finish the 24 compositions?

Download the Preview (png). It is January 1st. If you can play this, you can play all the pieces from The Calendar.

Download another Preview (png), a do-it-yourself composition from December. Try to finish it.

Download the free Index (pdf) of this album. 79 pages with 366 examples of keys, time signatures, rhythms and patterns that could inspire you, if you're looking for an idea.

The Calendar costs only $ 14.90 - Instant download.
