Notes on a Neighbourhood


Notes on a Neighbourhood is a collection of miniatures for piano, inspired by the educational piano works of Walter Carroll. Ranging from approximately grade 3 to grade 5 level, these pieces were primarily written to teach technical and expressive skills in an imaginative and appealing way, and to introduce musical styles to young piano students with still-growing hands.

All of the pieces from Notes on a Neighbourhood are in grades 3-5 of ANZCA’s 2022-2024 Classical Pianoforte and Modern Pianoforte syllabi.
