 Hi, it's great to meet you!

I'm Lorel, the pianist behind the brand. As a dedicated ballet accompanist and music educator, I’ve discovered that ballet classes can be interesting and engaging or same old, same old. When a dance teacher is comfortable and confident counting any music type they want, ballet classes become truly special! The synergy between the music rhythms and the movements of dance becomes an unparalleled thrill! 


‚ÄúLorel's enthusiasm and love for her craft is infectious and inspirational! I would definitely¬†recommend this course to anyone looking for PD and would love to do additonal courses with Lorel in the future!!!‚ÄĚ

Awesome! You'll likely find the most benefit from these two fabulous PDFs! 

The first is a spreadsheet with a list of standard exercise types and then recommended music types divided by duple and triple meter, making it easy to keep class varied, music wise. 

The second PDF you can choose to add on is a list of pianists who have recorded ballet class music albums. This has been a huge hit with teachers who like to keep class stimulating and their students engaged!
