Hello, I’m Robert Long. Thanks for visiting my site.

It has often been said that the choreography of ballet is rooted in the music, but for me, the experience has been somewhat different. From an early stage I became fascinated with musically interpreting the balletic movements I was witnessing, and that is, to a large extent, how I learned ballet accompaniment.

More Ballet Music Information:



For ballet teachers and pianists who like to use repertory music in their classes whenever possible, the following video has several well known ballet selections transcribed for piano. Each selection is presented with a helpful title, the ballet it comes from and the Act and Scene where it can be found.

The music of Franz Schubert can be a very fertile source of music for ballet class. He is very melodic and renowned for his numerous songs (and of course many other works). There are several examples of what ballet instructors refer to as “square” phrasing, that is musical phrases of 8 or 16 bars, or multiples of 8 or 16. Here’s an excerpt from his ballet music from Rosamunde:
Franz Schubert : Ballet Music in G, from ‘Rosamunde’

Another composer whose music can be put to good use in ballet class instruction is Felix Mendelssohn. Like Schubert, he is an outstanding melodist, and his pleasant, tuneful music is often in phrases that are easy for learning dancers to follow. Here is an excerpt from The Dream, a ballet created using the music of Mendelssohn’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream:
The Dream
