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.

Alive and Growing

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.

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.

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.

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

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).

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.

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.

Titanic A Voyage in Piano Music - Intermediate

Titanic A Voyage in Piano Music - Intermediate

Rebekah Maxner

Categories: Piano Collections/Books

Levels: Intermediate/Late Intermediate (Gr 5-7)

  • Early to Late Intermediate (Levels 3 to 6)
  • 9 Piano Solos
  • Music heard on Titanic‘s maiden voyage arranged for piano, plus originals in 1912 styles

 

In 1912 the world was shocked when RMS Titanic, the world’s most luxurious ocean liner, sank to the bottom of the ocean, taking more than 1,200 souls with it. Countless books and movies have retold the story of the voyage, and of the ship after it was discovered in 1985. For the first time you can take part in the story by playing music that was heard on Titanic‘s only voyage. The pieces have been chosen from passenger accounts, from the White Star Line’s official songbook, several will be recognized from the Titanic movies you have seen, and two are originals written in 1912 styles. All have been arranged to offer early to late intermediate pianists music you will love to learn, and fall easily under the hands.

 

REVIEWS

“Your keen sense of musicality shines though in each selection. The blend of well-crafted compositions with historical snippets and photos is sure to make this book a success with students and teachers.” ~ Anne Crosby Gaudet, NS

 

“Every kid who came yesterday took home a copy of Titanic. Their eyes were THIS big!” ~ Anna-Maria, NS

 

“The pieces in these books are in various styles and offer differing challenges, making them ideal selections for festival, or a recital program. Students would enjoy dressing in period costumes and performing these selections at a recital, or perhaps at a senior’s residence. I would highly recommend these pieces for use in your studio for teaching and performing purposes.” ~ Barbara Long, The Quarter Note (NBRMTA quarterly), NB

A set of twelve playful and highly imaginative miniatures, each portraying an astounding animal. There is an Annoying Fly with its goofy theme and buzzing effect, Boastful Kangaroo with its left hand leaps and chords that move chromatically. Busy Woodpecker has a truly pecking theme accompanied by fast alberti bass while Tarantula's Tarantella offers yet another challenge in fast playing with a variety of different articulations. Whale Song, Thoughtful Rhino and Hedgehog at Night are more mysterious in nature while Orange Striped Zebra, Silly Little Squirrel and Dancing Penguins are sweet little pieces for children. Happy Grasshopper has a lively and bouncy character that reflect its free and independent nature while March of the Centipedes has quite a mischievous theme. Great for recitals and festivals. Strongly recommended by the International Piano magazine.
