DESCRIPTION

24 Piano Selections for the Ballet Class. 13 barre, 11 center exercises. No repeats. Extra long tracks. Finis Jhung always looks forward to having Ron Musicus play for his classes in New York City, because he is so simpatico, and always comes up with either composed music or improvisations that fit the exercise perfectly. Ron plays with such an extraordinarily high level of concentration and expertise, he is able to energize and exhilarate all the dancers. He’s a favorite of New York's Pro's. Try Track 20 for starters. It’s pure Musicus!

CUSTOMER COMMENTS

"Working in Chicago, I was spoiled by having live pianists play for my classes. Now, living in Arkansas, the only CD's I enjoy using are yours! The long bands and the interesting music keep my students engaged. Thank you for making these selections available online!" - Heather Intres, Dance Director/Assistant Director of Education, The Foundation of Arts, Jonesboro, AR
