Music with piano accompaniment

Dr. Corwell first earned a reputation as a composer primarily through the popularity of his dozens of pieces for solo (or duo) with a pre-recorded CD accompaniment. However, he has also written and arranged numerous pieces for solo with piano, and they are listed below. They run the gamut from very difficult to very easy, from serious to humorous, from moderately lengthy original works to very brief “encore” pieces. In other words, something for everyone!
