I have recorded two albums of my own solo piano compositions, both recorded at Crear House on the West Coast of Scotland.
Journey - Twelve Romances for Piano and Sky Blue Piano.
A brand new 5-track EP of relaxing music, “Piano Meditations" was released on 23rd April 2021. Please click on the album covers for further information.
New music for you, and for your pupils. I have published three piano sheet music books containing all the pieces from my albums:
The books have been typeset, designed and printed by people who work for ABRSM publishing, so they are easy to read, and look and feel great. These pieces are between grade 5 and 7 standard.
Join other piano teachers in recommending this uplifting and joyful music to their pupils. To find out how to purchase, including details of stockists, please visit my website shop:
Here are preview videos of my books:
You are invited to come and experience "Piano Meditations", along with a selection of pieces from “Sky Blue PIano” and "Journey - Twelve Romances for Piano”. Dates are being arranged for 2022, so please check back for further details of these.
British pianist and composer Adrian Lord studied at the Royal Northern College of Music in Manchester, and at Colchester Institute’s School of Music.
During his time at Colchester Adrian studied composition with Alan Bullard and Christopher Ball. His piano studies with Martin Hughes, and Robert Bell, led to him winning the Canon Jack award for Piano Performance.
He has spent much of his life writing short piano pieces, and performing them in regular concerts around the United Kingdom. In 2016 he released his debut album “Journey – Twelve Romances for Piano”, reflecting his inspirational journey as a composer which culminated in the recording at Crear, Western Scotland. His second album “Sky Blue Piano”, released in 2018, is a collection of new uplifting pieces.
During the Coronavirus lockdown of 2020 Adrian gave twice-weekly performances on Facebook Live, so people could watch whilst at home, with Pianist magazine describing it as a “must watch” online piano performance.
He has recently recorded a brand new collection of calming music, "Piano Meditations", which have just been released as a CD and sheet music book.
Adrian finds inspiration from visiting beautiful parts of the world, especially the Scottish Islands, and the English Lake District (where to date he has climbed 133 of the 214 Wainwright fells).
