Composer Nikki Iles Joins EVC Music

Piano Tales For Alice Nikki Iles EVC Music


Earlier this year, EVC Music Publications released a first book Piano Tales For Alice in the Nikki Iles Piano Tales series of new books of piano solos and duets aimed at young beginners by the award-winner jazz pianist, composer and educator Nikki Iles. Pieces are inspired by characters in the enchanting stories Alice in Wonderland and Alice Through the Looking-Glass by Lewis Carroll.

Piano Tales for Alice is a collection of sixteen piano pieces (14 solos and 2 duets) composed by Iles, who won the 2017 British Jazz Awards for best jazz pianist and is already well-known for her jazz piano publications at Oxford University Press and Faber. She is also a key member of the team at ABRSM.

“A few years ago, I played on an album with Kenny Wheeler that featured his poetry settings” she says “and the ones I remember the most were poems by Lewis Carroll with their strikingly surreal and child-like imagery. This gave me plenty of ideas for this suite of characterful pieces for children.”

The collection is suitable for students at Grade 1-3 ABRSM levels and is available at as a traditional book (price £7.99) as well as in digital format. Music stores may order the book from Alfred Music UK, email
