Downloadable piano accompaniment tracks played on a real piano to help you learn and perform your songs.

Welcome to PracticeTracks!

My name is Tom Wakeley, and since 2008 I have recorded over one thousand piano accompaniment tracks for singers to rehearse, learn and perform their musical theatre songs.

I have worked with many professional performers as their accompanying pianist over the years for their auditions and live performances, and time and again singers would come to the piano with a brand new music book and when I started playing their song they would look at me as if they’d never heard it before. ‘It didn’t sound like that on the recording’ was often the comment and I realised that very few singers can look at music in a book and hear what it sounds like. The key and the arrangement can be very different from ‘the recording’.

With this in mind, I set up PracticeTracks to provide singers with piano accompaniment tracks to help them accurately learn how to sing their songs and do themselves justice in the audition room!

So whether you are a professional singer or sing for fun, browse through the scores of accompaniment tracks that I have already recorded, and if the song you are looking for isn’t there, you can always use our custom track form to request a personalised track.

Tom this is incredible! I honestly can't thank you enough, I have no idea how I would have been able to do this without these tracks and thank you for recording the separate lines + helpful talk at the beginning, I was not expecting it to be so fantastically thorough.

I can't thank you enough. I have been winging it practically my whole career and now since moving to New York that is even more the case. To have you as a resource is so valuable to me and the speed at which you turn these tracks around is amazing.

Thank you so much for the “custom” track. It sounds great and I can’t wait for my student to work with it. I certainly will pass you on to friends in the singing business.
