The Color Collection Junior
In composing these elementary to late elementary pieces my goal was to create sounds I loved making at the piano when I was young. In fact, Kaleidoscope Colors was the second piece I ever composed, probably at the age of eight.
- Late Elementary to Intermediate (Levels 1 to 4)
- Multiple styles from impressionist to jazz and blues
- 10 Piano solos
From gorgeous character pieces to the blues, from black-key pentatonic to disco, this collection has it all! In composing these elementary to late elementary pieces my goal was to create sounds I loved making at the piano when I was young. In fact, the final piece was the second piece I ever composed, probably at the age of eight.
This book contains a variety of appealing elementary to late elementary pieces, contrasting in character and style. The collection equips the piano teacher with a number of contemporary attention-grabbing pieces for everyday practice or an annual recital indeed. ~ Valentyna Komisarenko, Ottawa, ON
Grrrreen Dino is the most impressive and loved piece of The Color Collection Jr. My students adore the simple jazzy left-hand movement, cool right-hand passages, and patterned structure of the piece. Surely, a 32-measure piece, that looks so complicated at first, is, in fact, easy to teach by rote-reading. ~ Valentyna Komisarenko, Ottawa, ON
Purple Balloon on a Ribbon is one of the most visually powerful and attractive pieces of The Color Collection Jr. Include imaginative prep work in your lesson plan and your students will love learning the piece. All in all, delicate melodic movement in half and quarter notes, framed with half-note chord movement in the left hand will awake avid artistry and encourage emotional performance. ~ Valentyna Komisarenko, Ottawa, ON
Orange Sunset is a captivating and fragile impressionistic piece that will fuel your student’s imagination and fascinate with the integrity of flowing melodic passages and beautiful harmonic sections. Not only this piece is 13 measures long, but also it can be taught by reading and rote memorization. The mixture of the dynamics makes this piece a valuable tool in developing the young pianists’ artistry. ~ Valentyna Komisarenko, Ottawa, ON
