Exploring piano technique through a variety of elements, the books include daily exercises, sight-reading, repertoire and musical time travel.

The Foundation Pianist is a set of two books for students beyond the beginner stage, aimed at those who want to develop a technical and musical foundation to help them progress on to intermediate levels. Book 1 is suitable for post-Grade 1 level and Book 2 is suitable for post-Grade 2 level. They are not ‘tutor books’ as such, but both anthologies provide an excellent, thorough and highly enjoyable technical and musical curriculum for their target levels. There are pieces and arrangements (Türk, Gurlitt, Rebikov, Schubert, Bartók, Bach, Mozart, and so on, as well as traditional music and pieces by authors themselves), daily workouts (exercises, sight-reading, repertoire, a vast collection of musical training activities, and facts about the musical time periods. It is like having Marshall (an expert teacher) and Blackwell (an award-winning composer and arranger) at your elbow as you teach.
