Prima Sonatina
by Kevin Olson

W9428 / 2.95

Elementary
This three-movement work has a modern style but isn’t dissonant–quite a compositional feat. A good piece for your “classical track” student: it’s energetic; uses creative voice leading and sequences; so cleverly written that it results in the illusion of hands together playing when actually hands play alone.

Phantom Waltz
by Edwin McLean

W9429 / 2.95

Elementary
A piece that will haunt your student all year around! An extremely easy waltz where hands stay in D minor position except for one left-hand crossover to B flat (no key signature used, just accidentals). With easy right-hand/left-hand coordination, the melody floats between the hands.

I Love Horses
by Mary Leaf

W9426 / 2.95

Early Elementary
Students who love horses can learn a lot from this piece in Middle C position. It uses no accidentals and has a clever lyric that mentions many different kinds of horses–from Chincoteague ponies to Clydesdales to Lipizzaners. The lovely waltz also features an optional teacher duet.

Meerkat Capers
by Jeanne Costello

P2018 / 2.95

Early Intermediate
This zippy piece in F minor is easier to play than it looks. It’s very patterned with L.H. playing open 5ths while the fast R.H. chromaticism swirls under the hand evoking images of a meerkat scampering around having fun.
