A fun piece that ends with the players madly playing as fast as they can between the RH and LH to mimic the scurrying spiders running rampant! A perfect piece for Recitals and Festival - especially at Halloween!

Don't Bug Me!

Don't Bug Me!

Beverly Porter

Categories: NFMC Bulletin (US), Piano Duets

Levels: 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.

Martha Hill Duncan

Levels: Early Advanced/Advanced (Gr 8 - 9)

Level 8-9: Inspired by Spencer Hope's pencil drawing of hollyhocks growing in the historic city of Kingston, Ontario, these “over the top” garden blooms are bold and brash with their large colourful flowers and sturdy stalks. Written for two former piano students Emily and Kaleigh, who,  like these "forever" flowers,  will remain "forever" friends. Designed to highlight each player equally, so don't be shy...M.H.

Jolly Pachelbel - Jolly Old Saint Nicholas and Pachelbel's Canon

Jolly Pachelbel - Jolly Old Saint Nicholas and Pachelbel's Canon

Rebekah Maxner

Categories: Piano Duets, Seasonal

Jolly Old Saint Nicholas and Pachelbel’s Canon, arranged together in a piano duet for beginner and teacher (Early Elementary plus Early Intermediate duet part).

  • Main book plus two removable practice sheets:
  • Pre-staff sheet with music and words
  • Early staff sheet without words (Early Elementary, Prep A)
  • Duet/accompaniment — Intermediate (Level 4)
  • Score comes with two arrangements: In F to accompany pre-staff, and in C to accompany early staff

 

This is a special arrangement of Jolly Old Saint Nicholas, in which the melody of this well-known Christmas classic is matched with a reduction of the equally famous and loved music from Johann Pachelbel’s Canon in D.

 

This Christmas arrangement appeals to piano teachers and their young beginning students. Two versions are included with the Teacher Package, pre-staff (Jolly Pachelbel in F) and early-staff (Jolly Pachelbel in C). The teacher chooses the appropriate arrangement depending on the reading level the student has achieved by the Christmas recital.

Mechanical Man

Mechanical Man

Beverly Porter

Categories: Piano Duets

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

This  would be fun to play as a first ensemble with an equal partner.

Mechanical Man has to be wound up before he'll move.  Halfway through he slows down, stops and has to be wound up again. Secondo plays in a stationary position and though Primo moves for the middle section it isn't  difficult. Highly patterned.

Rayan's Duet Book

Rayan's Duet Book

June Armstrong

Categories: Piano Duets

Levels: Early Elementary/Beginner/Prep A/B, Intermediate/Late Intermediate (Gr 5-7)

Rayan's Duet book is a teacher and pupil book designed for sight reading practice, with easy primo parts in five finger position.  The inspiration for this book came from Kathenka’s Muziekboek by Jurriaan Andriessen, which is beautifully constructed so that each simple five finger primo part skilfully complements a much more rhythmically and harmonically sophisticated secondo part.  For that reason, the primo parts are also satisfying to sight read for more than just elementary players.  The duets can be easily read at one sitting.
