Dog Bone Draw
by Myra Brooks-Turner
P2021 / 2.95

Early Intermediate
Even though this piece is in the key of D minor, it’s happy and energetic with clever, unexpected harmonic twists. L.H. utilizes solid and broken 5ths throughout; R.H. has jazz-style grace notes; and both hands play a contrary-motion chromatic scale.

La Festividad
by Myra Brooks-Turner
P2023 / 2.95

Intermediate
This perky piece brings to mind a “south of the border” celebration with all the pageantry and excitement of a mariachi band. It starts in C major, modulates to F major, and ends in C major. Uses parallel 6ths in the right hand, and arpeggiated 10ths in the left. Easy to learn and fun to play!
