Hello, just discovered this forum! I've been playing the piano for quiet a few years, but last year I didn't really have much time to practice due to my A-levels. This year I'm on a gap year and looking to get back into playing, and I would say I'm roughly grade 6, but can play some grade 7 pieces (I've never taken any grades officially, but my nan's been playing and teaching for decades, so I'm not too bad!) I've just come across this piece of music below, and am looking for some artists/pieces similar to this to learn of the standard of grade 6/7. Does anyone have any suggestions? I want to have a bit of a browse on youtube but don't really know who to start with! Thanks

Brilliant choice, Yiruma's music is beautiful..

For a similar artist you could try Ludivico Einaudi, who is of a similar new-age genre. I particularly like 'Nefeli' and 'Le Onde'..

Thanks so much for those suggestions; Le Ondo sounds particularly stunning!

Moonlight Sonata is the one I've been learning most recently; absolutely love it. I have just a small keyboard at home, and when I go round my nan's to play on a proper piano it sounds so gorgeous

Cheers for the quick replies, keep them coming! :p:

I'll second Ludovico Einaudi, Bella Note is really nice to play and about the right level.

I'm glad Ludivico has a strong following on here

I also recommend one from New Moon which is 'alexandre desplat - new moon (the meadow)'...

it's gorgeous

I can't believe the replies on here lol. When I read the first post the first piece of music I was going to recommend was River flows in you, I'm literally in the middle of downloading Yiruma's album because I love that peice so much but then I realised that you'd posted that as your link. My second choice I was then going to say was Einaudi because he has awsome peices that sound similar but everyone has posted Einaudi ! These are obviously very popular choices lol. My favourite Einaudi peices are Le Onde, Nefeli, I Giorni, In un'altra vita I also love Frederic Chopin - Prelude opus 28 no.4 but this is a different stlye to Yiruma and Ludivico

Yeah, I totally love that peice, prelude in e minor is one of my favourite peices of music. I don't personally play the piano I just love listening to it. I play guitar though, and I'm trying to find guitar adaptations. They don't always sound as good as the paino. Some peices I prefer on violin as well, like chopins nocturne in C sharp minor.

Clair de lune is lovely, I must admit that I don't know as much Debussy - I know clair de lune and a few others like arabesque.

I'm also not a fan of either, but that's a rather flippant way of putting it. I find it quite strange though that Philip Glass is never mentioned in these threads. Unlike the other two I do like his music, but I've wondered what others think of him
