Alive and Growing

Joanne Bender

Categories: Piano Collections/Books

Levels: Early Advanced/Advanced (Gr 8 - 9), Intermediate/Late Intermediate (Gr 5-7)

Planet Earth is a dreamy gentle piece which uses beautiful harmonies to create a feeling of warmth and thoughtfulness for the earth. Play it freely and expressively.

 

Keep on Moving is a fast-driving piece which uses quartal chords to create a bold sound. Bring out the melody notes and keep the accompaniment soft. Keep the rhythm steady through the metre changes and the variety of rhythmic patterns. End boldly.

 

Metamorphosis refers to a change or transformation. Caterpillars undergo a metamorphosis when they become butterflies. In this piece, a change from the minor key to the major key takes place. Enjoy the soft jazzy harmonies and rhythms.

 

Octa-Tonic is a lively "spiky" piece based on the octatonic scale. Play it with energy and it will energize you and those around you.

 

High Five Alive is in 5/4 time and flows like a river meandering through the countryside. Its minor key is haunting.

 

Lean Mean Green Machine is to be played with drive. It varies between 6/8 and 5/8 time and uses quartal chords to give it a unique sound. Crisp staccatos and good accents make this environmentally-friendly piece come alive.

 

Shadows in the Forest sets a dark, mysterious atmosphere by using many perfect fifth intervals. The damper pedal helps to sustain the shadowy mood. The tremolo adds drama.

 

Trembling Aspen is an impressionistic piece that paints a tone-picture of the trembling aspen tree, whose leaves tremble in the wind. Its plaintive melodies are haunting.

Welcome to the world of Dreams and Dragons - where not everything is as it seems.  The premise for this collection was to take a single musical idea and create from it both a dream and a dragon, presented as a pair of pieces.  But which is the dream and which is the dragon?  Many of the pieces contain elements of both.  It is a soundscape of make-believe, fairy tales and legends.  Some of the pairs of pieces incorporate only the initial impetus, whilst other pairs contain several corresponding musical ideas.

It has been an immense pleasure creating these arrangements of some of the most beautiful and enduring melodies ever to come from Ireland.  I have treated each melody in a completely different style, but without disturbing the traditional essence of the music.  Whilst I have listened to many interpretations and investigated various sources, I have made no attempt to be bound by traditional interpretation or scholarly research, and the musical ideas employed and the harmonies used are entirely my own.

Madge's Notebook A Piano Tribute to The Hunger Games

Rebekah Maxner

Categories: Piano Collections/Books

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

Engaging music for teens and tweens!

  • Early Intermediate to Early Advanced piano solos (Levels 3 to 8)
  • One Intermediate duet (1P4H)
  • A Piano Tribute to the Hunger Games
  • A piano book you can imagine that the series characters would have on their piano
  • An imagined setting of music mentioned in the books: folk music of District 12, music by Madge for Katniss, plus classics from a time before Panem

 

Several pieces evoke folk music from District 12 that is mentioned in The Hunger Games books, including the lullaby Deep in the Meadow, the patriotic Valley Song, the haunting The Hanging Tree, the simply beautiful Toasting, as well as the Wedding Dance.

There are also new twists on classics and classic rock that I imagine would still be known in the future, including a Bach/Lennon mash-up Imagine a Prelude, a Beethoven/Led Zeppelin mash-up, Stairway for Elisa, and a new take on the Moonlight Sonata, Over the Moon.

The final two pieces are from Madge to Katniss, Friends of a Feather, a duet, and For Rue, a Chopin-inspired waltz based on Rue’s “all’s well” signal.

 

REVIEWS

“The pieces are so well thought out and student’s will love the literary connections.” ~ Penny Lazarus

 

“Many of the pieces are original compositions, but there are also some interesting pieces inspired by famous piano pieces…. The pieces seem to evoke the original classical work, rather than exist merely as a simplified version.  Very creative!” ~ Joy Morin, Color in My Piano blog

 

“One of the things that Rebekah mentioned that really impressed me was that she “tried to imagine what piano music of our era would have survived into the future world of District 12” ~ Penny Lazarus

 

“…a very creative and unique music book containing songs that capture the series’ setting and story really well, while tastefully interweaving snippets of famous pieces…” ~ Natalie Weber, Music Matters blog

Categories: Piano Collections/Books

Levels: Early Advanced/Advanced (Gr 8 - 9), Intermediate/Late Intermediate (Gr 5-7)

These pieces came about during a time when I was discovering my creative voice through experimentation with various compositional techniques. I was exploring the colors in modes, the vitality of rhythms, the richness of polychords, as well as other stylistic elements. It was during this process that I began to open up my “window” to different sounds and styles of music. This collection contains both reflective and show-piece explorations. I hope they open up your musical lens to views that are uniquely stunning! Late intermediate piano solos. 24 pages. Updated edition (2010).

Piano Reflections

John Burge

Categories: Piano Collections/Books

Levels: Advanced/Diploma (Grade 10, ARCT and up), Early Advanced/Advanced (Gr 8 - 9)

Piano Reflections is a collection of eight Intermediate and Advanced piano solos. In many ways this collection is a follow-up to Parking an Octatonic Truck in that both books include compositions that were written in the late 1990's for use as quick-study pieces. Initially this new set was to consist of only six pieces but while assembling and editing the music, Burge was asked to write a composition for one of his colleagues at Queen's University in honour of the university's first Nobel Prize recipient in 2015. Although completely unanticipated at the time, the resultant tribute to Dr. Arthur McDonald titled, "Oscillations," became this collection's most significant work. There is a fine video of Burge performing this diploma-level composition on Youtube. Additionally, in 2015 Adele Barclay, a writer and former first-year harmony student of Burge's, happened to mention his solo piano arrangement of "O Canada" in a Literary Review of Canada book critique. As this arrangement often changed character due to its improvisational underpinnings, finally putting the notes down on paper made his setting of "O Canada" another ideal addition. 42 Pages.

Rathlin is an island lying off the north coast of County Antrim, Northern Ireland, where puffins come to breed annually, and can be seen from May to August.  The island is remote and beautiful and is home to much wild life.  Our day on ‘Puffin Island’ starts with a breezy trip from the mainland on the ferry, arriving in the early morning mist.  We see gannets, hares, seals, puffins and curlews.  There are sea anemones in the rock pools and waves breaking on the beach.  After an evening of Irish traditional music, the sun sets peacefully in the west.

Seven Circles

Seven Circles

John Burge

Categories: Piano Collections/Books

Levels: Advanced/Diploma (Grade 10, ARCT and up), Early Advanced/Advanced (Gr 8 - 9)

Seven Circles is a set of seven solo piano pieces, all based in some fashion on the sequential pattern referred to as “the circle-of-fifths”. Simply put, the harmonic design or broader tonal structure of each individual piece progresses by descending perfect fifth intervals, moving through the complete chromatic set of all twelve possible pitches, until arriving back at the opening key. In some of the shorter pieces, this underlying basis is clearly displayed on the surface of the music, but in the longer pieces, the circle-of-fifth points of arrival can be somewhat hidden (perhaps as an extended pedal point or even as a distinctive key area for an expanded passage). Probably the most important aspect of Seven Circles is that each of the pieces is highly distinctive, thereby emphasizing different approaches one can use when employing this sequence. 33 pages.

 

A short video compilation of the opening of each movement with music can be found in the Sound Samples & Scores, but if you want to hear a spoken introduction about the entire set followed by a complete performance by the composer, try this link:

Six Little Preludes and Fugues was written for the early intermediate/intermediate level pianist.  Each prelude and fugue is related, sometimes just in style but sometimes also in thematic material as well.  Playing a fugue is an art in itself.  It teaches much about form, but also about musical architecture and balance.
