    • Developing skills and technique between grades.
    • 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.



Whether you’re working through our exams, playing informally, or planning a performance, Encore is full of music you’ll want to play again and again.

Bristol GB Piano and vocal teacher
At least 50 per cent of the pieces had favourable response.
One or two pieces were perceived as ‘too childish’ by my pupils.

Tiverton GB Piano beginner
Each piece contains footnotes about the piece, although could be far more informative.
Only 21 pieces - very disappointing considering supposed to cover past few decades with probably over 200 pieces available.
