The Reivers of Duns (
4 Reviews)
The Scottish Reivers were gangs of horsemen who raided the towns along the border of England and Scotland from the 13th to the 17th century. They were master riders and were revered across the land. Each year the town of Duns in Scotland has a festival to celebrate the Reivers. This showcase solo for beginners is inspired by my many childhoods dancing in the town’s Market Square waiting to see the riders come through!

Lovely and EASY. My students have loved playing this piece and I love hearing it!

This is such a lovely, melodic piece. I love it for my students -- and I love it for me too. Just beautiful.

I just can't stop playing this song! I love how it sounds with the drone in the left hand, and the way that the melody falls so easily under the fingers of the right. I hope to see many more like this! :)

I love this piece, which offers a chance to be transported to the wilds of Scotland, as the music takes you on a journey over moorlands with men on horseback protecting their lands.
