Tropical Breeze is a very pretty song that I know will appeal to my students. I like the practice my students will have with the Latin rhythm and parallel 6ths.

This is a great song!! When i used (and perused) the audio sample i was led to think it’d be hard to play. Then i saw the score sheet and there was a clear writing and some new concepts. I must say your music has that quality, at first it sounds complex, then upon reading it seems manageable, and on the piano it is a pleasure! Of course, i don’t mean i play it right the first time (i never do! not even after a couple of tries, but the score allows me to build and learn with little difficulty… then again i am an engineer, not a musician, but your books sometimes makes me think otherwise ) Thank you! Looking forward to some more of this rythm that is so close to me, as a latin.

Bravo! Another well done composition that i will add to my arsenal of student savers. I envision utilizing this piece for the first lesson of the Fall term, as a way to say goodbye summer, and to escape the cold Midwest winters.

I like this piece very much and I know my students (and their parents) will too. The bossa nova rhythm is easy to understand and the music has a good flow without being aggressively syncopated. I would definitely use this in a student recital.
