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
Level Up! features ten easy showcase solos presented at three different levels to accommodate students using Piano Pronto beginning level method books like Keyboard Kickoff, Prelude, Movement 1, and the Fired Up! series. Teacher duet parts and play-along tracks are available to amp up the fun factor! Music composed by Jennifer Eklund.

Let’s Get Poppin’ is an upbeat primer level solo from Roadtrip: Rockstar Rally Volume 2, and includes a teacher duet part. This piece serves as a great introduction to simple left-hand crossovers and staccato. Music and lyrics by Jennifer Eklund and Kris Skaletski.
