NEW — This category features “How to Learn & Play” tutorials on selected arrangements by “Mercuzio” or “Mercuzio Pianist,” whose excellent arrangements are very popular on YouTube. Mercuzio is a somewhat anonymous Italian pianist/arranger (I have yet to see photos of him or actually videos of him performing), who is obviously a first-rate, classical trained pianist based on his audio recordings (visit his YouTube channel HERE) of his own arrangements of movie themes and popular songs. I have encountered several of his arrangements from time to time and I must say in all honesty that they are some of the finest piano arrangements in existence. What is even better is that because the original music is under copyright, meaning Mercuzio legally cannot profit from these arrangements, they are all FREE! Mercuzio’s arrangements are not all so easy, and many of them require a solid classical technique; therefore, it is my job as a teacher to break these pieces down and explain how to learn and play them to WRP members with more “average” abilities. I wish to pay respect to Mercuzio’s great artistry by devoting an entire category on WRP to tutorials on his arrangements.
