Educational MIDI Files
Home Concert Xtreme works with thousands of MIDI files from most of the premiere authors and publishers of piano teaching methods and supplementary materials as well as educational files for the early intermediate level pianist. Many of the college texts for group instruction and keyboard skills offer compatible MIDI files as well.
TimeWarp is proud to feature Paul Sheftel and to offer his oeuvre of MIDI works in the TimeWarp Store. Paul was possibly the first major pedagogue to compose a significant body of MIDI accompaniments, beginning in the 1980s.
Paul’s works include MIDI materials for his own collections of solo compositions and method materials as well as for Music Pathways, published by Carl Fischer, and Bastien Piano Basics, published by Kjos. Paul’s most recent publications include the 5-volume work called Personal Trainer and a companion work called Foundations, both co-authored with Phyllis Lehrer. Printed books are available from YBK Publishers.
He has also created MIDI arrangements for Twenty Eight-Measure Etudes by Carl Czerny. These etudes are taken from Op. 821. Paul has composed a part for a second piano, and all four hands have been recorded as separate MIDI tracks. Printed books are available from YBK Publishers.
Many additional MIDI albums from Paul can be found in his section of the TimeWarp Store.
