Saplings features twenty-one early intermediate piano solos and is the second anthology from the composers of Red Leaf Pianoworks. Following Red Leaf's first elementary volume, Sprouts, this collection raises the technical and interpretive challenges while keeping the repertoire imaginative and inspiring for both the teacher and performer.

Dance, Danse, Danza Volume 1
Lively dances and a little bit of soul to get you moving!
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.
14 intermediate pieces each one describing a constellation.
Twelve pieces inspired by titles from When We Were Very Young and Now We Are Six, the poetry books of A A Milne.
