This primer solo is so full-sounding, it doesn’t need a teacher duet! The optional pedal will help make the piece sound other-wordly, and students get a chance to experience shifting Middle C position in octaves, playing with dynamic contrasts, and 6/4 time. It’s an ideal first recital piece, or an emergency recital piece for an elementary or late elementary student who isn’t quite prepared to perform their assigned piece.
Key: F Lydian
Mood: Ethereal, angelic
