King III found inspiration from Aaron Copland’s Old American Songs to create a concert-quality late intermediate solo arrangement. Students will play 32nd notes, use lots of rubato and pedal, practice sudden dynamic and articulation changes, and determine their own fingerings

Mood: Stately, somber, sometimes bright

Pedagogy: 32nd notes, rubato, pedal, LH octaves
