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.
