    • Sourcing music for a concert or recital
    • Learning or playing for fun, away from the exam format.
    • Adults returning to Piano playing, looking for approachable repertoire they’ll recognise.



For teachers, we’ve made sure that the content is perfectly balanced at every level. For quick reference, each piece has a note highlighting skills to focus on. Encore is packed full of music that will:


    • Motivate students – all the pieces have been chosen for their ongoing popular appeal.
    • Form a bank of rich content, so you can pick and choose pieces to help each student improve.
    • Introduce new skills and techniques, to prepare exam candidates for the next level.

        Laugharne GB I love my piano
        Varied collection of pieces printed clearly on quality paper. Useful hints for performance included. As an amateur pianist who has taken up the instrument again after a break of 5 years, it provides a good idea of the standard I can play to. Would definitely recommend.
        Nothing I could find to fault it.
