Episode 22 – Arranging Ballet Class Repertoire

In the absence of David Yow, the three pianists bring you a Hot Topic episode very close to our hearts, and an essential skill required to becoming a successful ballet pianist.  We are discussing how we arrange existing pieces of music to make it suitable for a ballet class, and ballet phrasing.

We also talk about the ways that musicians count their music, and how different that is for dancers.  And how important it is to recognise both in order to understand what the dancers and teachers mean when they count their exercise and the music.
