This EP is a collection of six contemporary, minimalist works for solo piano, inspired by walks in London’s dreamy Epping Forest. The pieces are all featured (some in an easier version) in my book of piano miniatures below. Listen on Spotify, Apple Music, etc.
Ten Short Pieces is a collection of piano miniatures of easy to intermediate difficulty in a contemporary, minimal style. Written with older beginners in mind, the book is suitable for any pianist wishing to play beautiful, contemplative music.

"Alex is an innovator in these inspiring pieces designed specifically in the first instance for adult pupils. Strongly recommended music from a wonderful composer." - Murray McLachlan, Chair of EPTA, Head of Keyboard at Chetham's School of Music.
"Ten Short Pieces is, on the whole, a delightful collection of contemporary, minimalist pieces. Most of the pieces are only one page long, the longest being four pages. Many of the ideas are repeated, so once the harmonic structure has been understood and recognised, it then becomes easier to play, as it no longer feels like a 'longer' piece." - Liz Dewhurst, private piano teacher in South Wales.
The book was featured in the April 2018 issue of Piano Professional magazine. Read Alex's interview here.
