Events For Piano Book 2 – Song List
🎝 Skeleton Bones is a piece in the minor mode – full of surprises and new technical challenges, such as using a quarter note chromatic scale in the left hand against an 8th note jingling figure in the RH – which is more than worth the effort to learn.
🎝 Autumn Haze, in a natural minor mode, is full of atmosphere and nostalgia. It’s haunting melody stays with you and helps you to memorize the piece.
🎝 Ping Pong is a one-of-a-kind, flash of sounds that draws excitement and applause every time it is played.
🎝 Rhythm is at the core of Kalahari with its open 5ths and hypnotic beat.
🎝 The characteristically Spanish interval of the third bounces through Mexican Dance and makes your fingers dance along in rhythm.
🎝 The emotional Barcarolle is a perfect example of music to accompany a ride in a gondola in Venice. It’s key of f# minor is quite comfortable and there is a thrilling climax in the middle.
🎝 Pinwheels is an absolute thriller with 8th notes swirling non-stop throughout its 26 measures.
