Welcome to Music for Ballet Classes, by renowned ballet pianist and composer Charles Mathews.
You will find CDs and MP3s of beautiful and inspiring music for classical ballet class. You can also purchase recordings of solos and variations for teaching, performance and auditions, as well as original compositions and arrangements for choreography and performances.
The Music for Ballet Classes series is a collection of CDs designed to re-create as closely as possible the sound, feel and inspiration of working with a talented live pianist. Each compilation includes a wide selection of musical styles and tempi, all featuring the sound of some of the finest grand pianos in the world. Every track has been tailored to last for an even number of musical counts, and each track starts with a four bar introduction. Exercises at the barre are often repeated on the following track for ease of running.
I hope you enjoy my music, and find it inspirational to dance to. If you have any suggestions, feedback or enquiries, please contact me - I'd love to hear from you!
