David's Dance Scores
A CD with 39 tracks of music from some of the greatest musicals ever all played on piano by David Plumpton.

With rock by Queen, pop by Abba, epic by Lloyd Webber and with a sprinkling of Disney and a dash of American master pieces from Grease, Hairspray and the Wizard of Oz this single disc pretty much covers all the bases.

This well thoughtout compilation of instantly recognisable tracks is arranged to fit perfectly the exercises in ballet class allowing the teacher to concentrate on class instead of fiddling with the music.

Sue Mills (RAD RTS Teaching Diploma)
These CDs are an excellent resource to complement your syllabus music for ballet,
particularly for free work and adult classes.

Modern Melodies: A selection of lighthearted familiar tunes. Great fun!

West End To Broadway: A must for musical Theatre lovers. Inspirational!

New Classics: Moving melodies for the traditionalist.

I found myself just wanting to listen to the music when planning my classes and that rarely happens! And I can’t wait to get through all the whole collection in class. The ones that we have used so far have been inspirational and it is wonderful to see students refreshed by new music!

Unlike many stock music collections I found these to be beautifully arranged and played with introductions, essential for barre and centre practice work. I also found the accompanying information with each piece to be of real value. Giving you suggestions for exercises and the duration of the piece. Some good lengthy arrangements are included which enables the dancer to strengthen their stamina or for the teacher to arrange more complex combinations.

I would recommend them to any teacher working with a wide range of pupils and types of classes – a valuable musical resource.

I really love this CD. The songs are quite diversified and in my opinion they're a good contrast to the RAD-music I'm used to from ballet classes. 'West End to Broadway' is a good CD for exercise at home. Especially those dancers who love musical theatre will like this CD quite much

As an 'old crock' who can't bear to give up ballet dancing (more adult ballet classes please!) I can really recommend these CD's; clearly labelled with length and timing, they are great for use in class and really bring a smile to your face. I also love to listen to them at home while doing housework (I am a much better dancer in my head!!)
