ACWC Piano Collective

piano collective banner

The ACWC Piano Collective is made up of ACWC composers who compose piano music for beginning and more advanced piano students, and those who write teaching materials encouraging students at all levels to explore composition, improvisation and use of their creative voice. This collective wants to make better known the piano music by Canadian women composers, and to make it more accessible to piano teachers throughout Canada and beyond. The ACWC provides a platform for teachers to find scores, and to access composition and improvisation exercises and helpful materials about writing piano music for students at various levels. We want teachers and students to discover and engage with Canadian repertoire that is creative and helpful in their learning process.

Teachers, please browse the ACWC Piano Collective Catalogue for scores by ACWC composers, categorized according to skill level. Some scores have an indication that they are available from either the Canadian Music Centre: www.musiccentre.ca, Red Leaf Piano Works: http://www.redleafpianoworks.com/, or elsewhere. Otherwise all other scores can be obtained by contacting the composer directly by clicking her name below.
