September

Sheet Music composed by Sarah Reaser O'Brien

(1 review)

This is a lyrical piano ballad in waltz time for intermediate pianists by Sarah Reaser O’Brien, NCTM. The melody is made almost entirely of ascending and descending pentascales (5-note scales) on white keys. The accompaniment for left hand requires a hand span primarily of melodic octaves with an occasional melodic tenth. The ternary form features a middle section with surprising harmonies and a deceptive cadence. Middle and high school students will find this piece both accessible and rewarding.

One of my students said that this piece sounded like a major/minor piece. I suggested the word "melancholy" - which is what it should be considering that September is between the summer fun and looking ahead to fall and winter...the in-between month. We really liked this song and it really fits the title. Thank you, Sarah. Teagan really likes your song.
