Nightscapes

Beverly Porter

Categories: Collections/Books

Level: Elementary/Early Intermediate (Gr 1-4), Intermediate/Late Intermediate (Gr 5-7)

This collection of pieces has been written over a span of several years and endeavors to portray some of the events and sights of the nighttime hours. The levels are about 1 through 5 and there is a variety of styles from romantic to ragtime, from quiet to playful and from dancing to dreaming. As always my intention is to spark the imagination and musicality of piano students and I hope I have succeeded in some small way towards that goal.

Don't Bug Me!

Beverly Porter

Categories: Duets

Level: Elementary/Early Intermediate (Gr 1-4)

From Lady Bug and Friends Both players want to play the primo and partway through the piece secondo decides to go for it, moves up the bench and shoves primo off! Primo has to run to the other end and finish playing the lower part It's good practice for each partner to learn both parts and ensures that both master the rather tricky rumba rhythm. It's also lots of fun and can be "hammed up" to great effect.

Turquoise Tangle

Beverly Porter

Categories: Trios

Level: Elementary/Early Intermediate (Gr 1-4)

The lilting, tango rhythm is introduced and played throughout by the lowest part with both harmonic and melodic interest for the middle player. Primo adds counter melodies and the sound of castanets in the high register. Rhythmic accuracy is essential for all partners especially after the quarter rests that punctuate the pulse.
