Review: Supersonics Piano

Reviews

If you haven’t heard of Supersonics Piano, you are in for a treat. In 2013, Daniel McFarlane released his website Supersonics Piano.

There are over 100 original compositions available on his website. Daniel’s music is diverse, filled with contemporary sounds, fun rhythms and appealing to all ages. His compositions are those that fit the “sounds harder than it is” bill that we often try to find for some of our students. His music in particular I think is motivating for boys to play, but really enjoyable for all.

The thing I love most about the Supersonics Piano website is how easy it is to navigate. Because it is digital copies, it is important to know what you are purchasing. You can not only view samples, but can hear samples of each piece. His music ranges from Elementary through Early Advanced. You can purchase single digital licenses or unlimited reproductions. You can purchase the pieces as singles or in some cases albums. For example albums A and B include quite a bit of the singles. When you buy the albums, you are getting more bang for your buck. In addition there are backing tracks available of albums A and B. Group licensing is available for the duets and trios. Digital music is here and is the way of the future.

Because it is monsoon season here in Arizona, I thought I would show a preview of a piece by Daniel McFarlane titled, Monsoon so you can get an idea of what the previews will look like. (Fun piece by the way)

If you go to the website and scroll down to the footer of the page, you will see that you can sign up for the newsletter updates. When you do, you can receive free samples of music to try out. New releases are always discounted by 15% for the first 3 days after their release so it is worthwhile to be notified of updates! Also be sure to check out the teacher rewards program! In addition, I would encourage you to stay updated with the latest music or ask questions about Daniel’s music on the Supersonics Piano Discussion Group page.

Now for some goodies. Daniel has offered ALL the readers a 15% discount on all his music in his website. Use code: superfps when you make your order. This code will expire next Friday, July 25th.

AND we’re not done… On top of that Daniel has offered to do a giveaway to one lucky winner a single print copy of one of the 3 books (your choice).
