Journeys Piano Series

Journeys is a six-part series of graded solo piano repertoire written to help learners expand musically and technically into new areas.

Each album contains a wide variety of genres and moods; the series also features music from different cultures around the world. This diversity will encourage the learner to journey into unfamiliar territory, exploring new ideas and learning new musical techniques.

The 30 varied pieces in this volume include folk songs, sea shanties, pop songs, and concert pieces.

Praise for Journeys

“Taken as a whole, this ambitious series can be warmly recommended for the range of musical styles included, the care taken over the presentation, and the wealth of new music it adds to the intermediate-to-early-advanced pianist’s repertoire.”

Andrew Eales, pianodao.com

“The pieces are real gems! They will be a valuable edition to any student library and I think they are also perfect ‘studies’ for students, students of ANY age, as all the pieces feature important piano technique, introduce students to a wide variety of styles and are musically so very lovely and exciting. There is something for everyone.”

Beate Neblett, Pianist and Teacher, CT

“William Minter has created a collection of highly attractive and varied piano music which will appeal to all ages and tastes.”

Frances Wilson, The Cross-eyed Pianist

“The pieces are original, slightly strange, innovative, interesting and quirky.”

Cynthia Shaw, Pianist and Teacher

“Several hours of playing through the collection of six books was truly delightful! From the covers to the vast array of inspired styles within, William’s books are artistic and a great addition to any studio.”

Natalie Weber, Music Matters Blog

“After teaching piano for nearly 30 years, I was particularly delighted to encounter Will Minter’s “Journeys.” These volumes contain a variety of fascinating pieces with captivating rhythms, melodies, with traditional and more venturesome harmonies.”

Donald Alfano, D.M.A. Hamden CT

“Overall, these books offer pupils a good value means to acquire a volume which covers virtually all conceivable styles and genres.”

David Barton, Pianist and Author
