Piano Etudes

Little Pieces for the Piano is a book of Wayne Horvitz’s compositions written for the piano student in mind. Appropriate for beginning or intermediate piano students.

For a limited time: During school and work closures due to the coronavirus, Wayne has released Little Pieces as a free PDF. This release will be partnered with a newly-composed series of pieces, intended almost entirely for beginning- and intermediate-level players; these new compositions will be posted regularly, also for free, and the PDF will be updated as time permits. You can download the PDF and sign up to be notified about the new pieces here.

For a pay-what-you-like PDF version, visit Wayne’s Shop. Read Clavier Companion’s review of Little Pieces here.
