A Day at the Beach

Amy Stephens

Categories: Piano Collections/Books, Rock, Jazz, Pop, and Blues

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

Five super-fun pieces in Latin-jazz and jazz styles depicting sites at the beach: skipping rocks, hang gliding, exploring tide pools, surfing, and watching dolphins. Each piece has an accompanying song construction activity page to help students understand the compositional devices behind the music and to give students the opportunity to compose their own ideas. This book also helps students understand chromatic, whole tone, lydian, and blues scales, as well as complex intervals like 9ths and 10ths. Most of all, these rhythms feel really fun under the fingers!  This suite was awarded 1st place for Composers Today 2022.

Childhood Excursions: Are We There Yet?!

Childhood Excursions: Are We There Yet?!

Amy Stephens

Categories: Piano Collections/Books, Rock, Jazz, Pop, and Blues

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

In this suite, Amy takes the performer through her most-treasured childhood memories in Ontario, exploring places like the Algoma Railway to Sault Ste Marie, performances at Stratford, the waterfalls at Niagra-on-the Lake, the monarchs at Point Pelee, and harvest time in Chatham. The suite teaches arm and wrist fluidity, with each piece focusing on a different aspect of using elbow and wrist movements at the piano: drop-lift slurs, wrist rotation, wrist circles, side-to-side and in-and-out motions. Amy combines classical form with jazz language and sensibilities in these very fun pieces.  This suite was awarded 1st place for Composers Today 2023.

The duet ‘Black Tie Showdown’ is a new key pattern showstopper.
