Music composed and performed on piano by Robert Long.
Working as a ballet music pianist-accompanist, I have been playing ballet class music for over twenty-five years. I have played for “open” classes, where the pianist selects music or improvises in accordance with the instructor’s requirements as well as syllabus classes (mostly RAD). Ballet Etudes, Etudes II and Ballet Class Music: Etudes Volume 3 are products of my years of experience with many wonderful ballerinas, instructors and ballet students. Please enjoy your visit! Thank you!
