Additional Notes Abstract The concept for the Wirripang Anthology was seeded at the Australasian Piano Pedagogy Conference in Sydney in 2009 with the aim of producing a body of recently composed Australian repertoire for piano teachers. Wirripang are independent publishers that specialise in Australian music, including scores, books and CDs. They commissioned all of their composers to compose and submit new works suited to piano students from beginner to advanced level. These were received in November 2010 and after careful review a short-list of repertoire for each grade was compiled. The works were recorded in January-February 2011 at the School of Music, University of Queensland, and Critical Notes were written in April 2011. The prototypes of the books were circulated amongst teachers for comment regarding the grading of the repertoire and each composer had the opportunity to review and amend the Critical Notes about their pieces. The lecture-recital consists of at least one piece from each grade and includes works by Betty Beath, Diana Blom, Colin Brumby, Anne Carr-Boyd, Amanda Handel, Andrew Helberg, May Howlett, Jocelyn Kotchie, John Martin, Stephen O’Connell and John Peterson. They range in style from Classical and Romantic to Jazz and contemporary and provide teachers with new repertoire for their students. The discussion includes aspects of style, structural analysis, technical and musical challenges, and ways of overcoming these in teaching.
