Pam Lunn and David Pennant both have a drawer full of harder piano duets - Bach, Beethoven, Schubert etc. Try my seven easy piano duets (four hands on one piano). Free download. Also available there are fifteen pieces for solo instrument and piano where the piano part is deliberately as easy as I can make it. I wrote these pieces with families in mind where one child plays the piano and another an orchestral instrument, so that they could play together. Also useful for pupils that struggle to find a piece to play together for GCSE. All free download.

Putting on Concerts

Thinking of putting on a musical event?

Local venues for hire to put on a concert : Try Brookwood Church which has a reasonable grand piano. The Hall of All Saints Church Woodham has good parking, but no piano: the church has a good organ. Other suggestions please.

For history and specifications of the Rhoda McGaw theatre, see here.

KASJOG use Stage A Show ltd for their sets and Dress Circle Costumiers ltd for their costumes, with pleasing results.
