Backyard Bash

Songbook composed by Sarah Reaser O'Brien

(2 reviews)

Backyard Bash is a collection of solos written for beginning pianists who enjoy playing music with lyrics. With the exception of three pieces, Crazy Cat, Old Dog, and Tree Swallow, these songs describe actual events that have happened in my suburban backyard in Southwest Virginia. Crazy Cat combines the personalities of two of our family cats, Calhoun and Casper, into one. Old Dog is about our Golden Retriever, Clyde, who lived with us when we started our family and was the kindest and most gentle dog I’ve ever known. Tree Swallow is about a male tree swallow who behaved exactly as described in the lyrics, but in my father’s backyard rather than in mine. I have found that my students love playing these songs because they sound more difficult than they are, and they are fun to sing along with! I hope you enjoy these musical nature studies and learn to play them all! - Sarah O’Brien

My students love this collection of accessible, imaginative pieces. They love to sing along with the cute words, which aids immensely in their fluency and musicality. I love teaching these!

I love this songbook! The arrangements are perfect for students struggling to get out of C Position. My students enjoy the "cool" (yet easy) left hand lower bass sounds. And the animals! Who can resist these delightful backyard critters?
