Do I have access to all repertoire packs?
Yes! As a member you have access to every piece ever released. As the collection grows, this might change and future members might only have access to the previous month. Joining now has a huge benefit!
Are the pieces emailed in a certain order for level of difficulty?
No, it’s randomly ordered. All teachers have a range of students, so the level of difficulty changes. Whilst every piece in the Rote Repertoire series is manageable for pianists in their first two years of learning, intermediate students will pick them up far more quickly and advanced pianists can use them as a super-quick sight reading exercise in the lesson!
Can I send the pieces to my students?
Yes! Each piece is studio licensed so that you can send the pdf sheet music and the audio files to your students. The only thing you can’t send is the video content – this is not downloadable.
If I stop my membership will I still have access to the packs?
No. You would need purchase packs individually for the pieces you want to access.
Can anyone become a member?
Absolutely anyone can become a member! There are many adult students who enjoy having material sent to them, and parents who have multiple children learning piano will find this a cost beneficial way of purchasing repertoire!
