Beginner Ballet
Music for the First Years

First Steps CD is music designed for the beginning years of ballet instruction. It incorporates slow and steady tempos that are necessary for the introduction and execution of new steps without sacrificing the artistic quality of music. The CD is a compilation of classical pieces using their original compositions with very little improvisation. Each of the selections include a four count introduction. Each track suggests an exercise only as a guideline.
