Spooky Goings On
Spooky Goings On, composed by Jenny Walker is an evenly-leveled duet for two intermediate players. There is no key change, merely the requirement to maintain a slowish, steady beat, provided mainly by the secondo player. Whether it’s ghosts, witches, or spiders that come to mind, this piece will be enjoyed by students and teachers alike.
Simply Chopin Preludes
The idea for this book came from listening to some of my favorite piano literature. Enchanted by the absolutely beautiful, lyrical melodies of Chopin’s Opus 28, I found myself wishing my own intermediate students could enjoy them now, and not just the handful of Preludes that are more accessible for students. As I edited these Preludes with intermediate hands and minds, it was my desire to preserve their full length, in the original keys, and with as much of Chopin’s original markings as possible. I hope you agree the result is a celebration of Chopin’s original work, but now accessible for the intermediate student!
