DIFFERENT KINDS OF ENSEMBLES

 

 

 

 

 

 

Most piano teachers will assign a piano duet to students who have mastered some basics. These teachers will use music scores that are arranged in a standardized duet format. Duet format is where two students sit at the same piano. The student on the right would play the high notes while the student on the left would play the low notes.

 

 

 

 

More rare is a piano duo. This is where each student would play a separate piano. Duo music is arranged so that each student gets to play over their entire piano (high and low notes), unlike a duet where each student is limited to half of the piano.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

David teaches duets and duos but also features music arranged specifically for five pianos! This means each pianist has a unique part where they have to “carry their weight” over an entire piano. These five separate parts add up to a rich, orchestrated sound. Five piano ensembles are truly delightful and educational in nature.
