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.

Madge's Notebook A Piano Tribute to The Hunger Games

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

Mechanical Man

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.

Without having to leave the piano, here is a collection of different sounds for you to explore from the Appalachian Mountains, the Highlands of Scotland, Ireland, Indonesia to Argentina.  Every instrument has different qualities and timbres.  You can create the world of the orchestra and beyond.  Not only is the music box packed full of instruments from all over the world, but also different types of music from many different musical eras.  Along with traditional music, you will find hints of John Dowland, J S Bach, Mozart, Saint-Saëns, Tchaikovsky, Debussy, Richard Strauss and Piazzolla and even encounters with the merry pranks of Till Eulenspiegel, a dreamy faun, a swan and the very delicate Sugar Plum Fairy.

Janet Gieck

Categories: Piano Collections/Books

Levels: Early Elementary/Beginner/Prep A/B, Elementary/Early Intermediate (Gr 1-4)

The titles of this collection of piano solos for the elementary student evoke the exciting and the fantastical. Composed using principles from Music Learning Theory, many of the pieces utilize repetition and explore the complete geography of the piano. Most would make excellent transposition exercises. I hope you find the pieces easy to learn, impressive to hear, and fun to play!

Beverly Porter

Categories: Piano Collections/Books

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

This collection of pieces has been written over a span of several years and endeavors to portray some of the events and sights of the nighttime hours. The levels are about 1 through 5 and there is a variety of styles from romantic to ragtime, from quiet to playful and from dancing to dreaming. As always my intention is to spark the imagination and musicality of piano students and I hope I have succeeded in some small way towards that goal.

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.

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.

The pieces in this collection were composed for my students to expose them to a variety of styles. We all like many different toppings on a sundae (or ingredients in a soup), and each addition makes a new combination of flavours and enriches our overall taste sensation. Just as trying new ingredients expands the possibilities of what can be created with food, my hope is that students will explore many different sounds and rhythms and broaden their musical palate. Late elementary to intermediate. 24 pages. Updated Edition (2010).

Take Ten

Take Ten

June Armstrong

Categories: Piano Collections/Books

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

Take Ten is a collection of jazz and blues inspired piano pieces for ten fingers for the elementary/early intermediate learner.  The pieces can be played just as they are written, with or without repeats, or they can be used to take early steps in experimentation with improvisation.  All the pieces can be played exclusively in five finger position, but alternative fingerings are of course acceptable.  The technical level has been deliberately kept simple to allow for developing a feel for the rhythm or groove, which is the most important element of the music.

The Color Collection Junior

The Color Collection Junior

Rebekah Maxner

Categories: Piano Collections/Books

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

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.

 

 

REVIEWS

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

The Nine Glens of Antrim

June Armstrong

Categories: Piano Collections/Books

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

The Nine Glens of Antrim are a very special part of Ireland.  Each of the nine pieces represents a glen, and explores the expressive and atmospheric ranges of the piano, evoking the beauty of the landscape through resonances of Irish music.  The pieces are early intermediate/intermediate standard.   Each one of them is designed to introduce a different element of technical development, and the collection presents a wide variety of styles and musical challenges.

Turquoise Tangle

Turquoise Tangle

Beverly Porter

Categories: NFMC Bulletin (US), Piano Trios

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

The lilting, tango rhythm is introduced and played throughout by the lowest part with both harmonic and melodic interest for the middle player. Primo adds counter melodies and the sound of castanets in the high register. Rhythmic accuracy is essential for all partners especially after the quarter rests that punctuate the pulse.
