Educate·S collects material from our back-catalogue suitable for teaching, as well as functioning as a platform for new works and series that are specifically made for or suited to teaching purposes. Bach, Brahms and Bartok each composed music in which pedagogic considerations and artistic ambitions combined to form a greater whole – benefiting the musical development of children and young people, and in this way introducing them to new musical experiences.
Here a selection of Edition·S composers’ contribution to this important tradition, such that we continue to encourage curious ears with a nuanced relationship to both classical music and music in general.

NEW EDITIONS – NEW MUSIC IN MUSIC SCHOOLS
Edition·S has developed a series of instrumental works with pieces written for music school students. The series consists of collections of 10 pieces composed by 10 contemporary composers. In order to ensure that the pieces fit in with the intended user-group, the composers are working in dialogue with an editorial team and receive feedback from music school teachers during the process. The first two volumes, one for piano and one for violin, was published December 2016 followed by pieces for percussion and pieces for guitar in 2017 and pieces for accordion and for cello in 2018. In 2023 volumes with pieces for viola and pieces for recorder will be published.
Pieces by ten contemporary composers. Purchase for piano, violin, percussion, guitar, accordion, and cello!

TREASURES OF THE CATALOGUE
In 1991 we published 10 Piano Pieces for Teaching Purposes written by Bent Sørensen, Svend Hvidfeldt Nielsen, Niels Rosing-Schow and Anders Nordentoft. The then somewhat younger composers are now established figures that enjoy both local and international success.
The level of difficulty of the pieces varies, and requires a certain level of proficiency in relation to reading music notation. Certain of them have particular requirements concerning dynamics, rhythm and use of the pedal. The full collection can be found here.
