What Child Is This
What Child Is This in a delicate, reflective jazz-style setting arranged by Jennifer Eklund. Ideal for intermediates of all ages, this piece offers a great opportunity to introduce students to the concept of rubato, lyrical phrasing techniques, and an exploration of nuanced jazz harmonies.
Festive Frolic, composed by Jenny Walker, is a quirky piece full of fun. Starting and finishing in the upper end of the keyboard, it slowly creeps down until we get just a hint of Jingle Bells together with left-hand chord leaps, which can be played slightly slower. The last part of the piece completes the musical sandwich with a playful ending.
Christmas by Candlelight
Christmas by Candlelight, is a collection of eighteen traditional Christmas carols in intermediate level arrangements by Rick Robertson. There is a variety of styles, keys, and moods, and all of these are suitable for church use. They are short, so the performer can create a group of their favorites for performance, rather than concentrating on longer, more difficult arrangements. Rich harmonies and interesting musical twists should make these a hit with developing pianists.
