Description

The Music for Ballet Classes series is a collection of CDs designed to provide dancers and dance teachers with all the music necessary for a complete classical ballet class. Each compilation includes a selection of musical pieces in a variety of styles and tempi, all featuring the sound of a Yamaha C3 Neo grand piano. 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 repeated on the following track for ease of running.

 

This second volume in the series features a larger selection of music specifically for pointe work, and is heavily influenced by my time spent working with Gloria Grigolato, one of the many wonderful teachers at Elmhurst School for Dance.

 

Charles Mathews is an experienced ballet and contemporary accompanist, who has worked with teachers and dancers from Birmingham Royal Ballet, Elmhurst School for Dance, and DNA3D Dance Company amongst others. As well as playing for classical ballet, Charles also regularly plays and improvises for contemporary dance classes in a variety of dance styles. He also composes for different genres of dance, and has written music for film trailers, computer games, the opening ceremonies of the European Gymnastics Championships and 2011 World Gymnaestrada in Lausanne, Switzerland.
