This elementary keyboard quartet was specifically designed for consumer-grade keyboards, but can also be performed on one piano! Students will get experience in ensemble playing.
The Primo and Secondo parts are written in a special “tetrachord” hand position that helps demonstrate scales for beginning students. Primo is a little easier than Secondo, which has some hands-together playing.
The Terzo part is written in Middle C position and is a little harder than the other parts, but is still at elementary level.
The Quarto part is written for one hand in C 5-finger position, making this an excellent ensemble piece in which a student with a broken arm can participate! (A primer student could even play this part.)
Individual parts and a full conductor’s score are included.
Key: C Major
Mood: victorious, happy, exuberant
Pedagogy: ensemble playing, orchestration, scales
