- Smooth Sailing
This piece is wonderful! I have a student who has been struggling through movement 1, but when I brought out this piece it was the perfect fit! Her mom say spellbound on the sofa watching the expression her daughter's face.
This piece is great! My students love it, and that means they practice it!
great pop style for students to practice melody on LH , legato and listen to both hand balancing
I have that reticent, perpetually negative, everything is "too hard" student that I was ready to give up on. As a last ditch effort, I pulled out Smooth Sailing and asked if I could play a piece for her. When I finished, I asked her what she thought of it. With a rapt expression, she said "I loooove it!"
Beautiful piece that beginning students will love. This will be a favorite recital piece with my students!
My nine year old daughter is absolutely loving this one. She sat down and played it over and over until it was memorized. Just beautiful.
This is a beautiful piece with simple patterns easily recognized by my elementary students. Even my late elementary students enjoy the simplicity of this song and describe it as "peaceful" or "relaxing".
