Compiled and edited by David Blackwell , Piano Mix 1 is packed full of brilliant music that has been specially arranged for Easy Piano. Featuring a diverse range of styles and genres from centuries ago to the present day, to help pianists progress from Grades 1 to 2. The repertoire in Piano Mix 1 reflects the type of music in the ABRSM Piano syllabuses.
